As part of the ongoing Tax Justice For All campaign in Revenue & Customs group, members of PCS Bootle Taxes branch met with Bootle MP Joe Benton on Wednesday 22 August.
The branch delegation were warmly received when we arrived and presented Mr Benton with a copy of Early Day Motion 211, calling for a properly resourced HMRC. Mr Benton assured us that he shares our deep concern about job losses – both locally out of concern for his constituents and nationally as well.
Mr Benton agreed to sign EDM 211 and we were delighted to hear that he intends to table questions regarding our campaign in the House of Commons to coincide with our lobby.
PCS will be lobbying MPs at Westminster on 17 October calling for tax justice for all.
