Event: Should we Bank on the Robin Hood Tax?


Aids Alliance

St Paul’s Institute, Tearfund, CAFOD and The Salvation Army have come together to host a panel debate in St Paul’s Cathedral on Tuesday 29 March 2011 at 7.00pm. The debate will focus on whether or not, and the extent to which, the financial sector has a moral role to play in contributing to the common good.

Public discussion on this topic has been stirred by the Robin Hood Tax campaign, which proposes an additional tax on the financial sector to raise billions of pounds that could be used to fight poverty and climate change both here and abroad.

Evan Davis, well known economist and BBC presenter, will chair the debate which consists of panellists from different perspectives, including:

  • Xavier Rolet, CEO of the London Stock Exchange
  • Michael Izza, CEO of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales
  • Rt. Revd. Peter Selby, former Bishop of Worcester
  • Baroness Shirley Williams, House of Lords

The event is free and non-ticketed. Doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start.
