TSSA welcomes IPPR and Archbishop of Canterbury's call for tax justice

5 September 2018

TSSA supports proposals to overhaul Britain’s taxation system and economy to help deliver economic justice.

The report introduced by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has been compiled by respected think tank the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) and TSSA is extremely proud to have supported the work of the Commission on Economic Justice.

Said TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, “This report signposts the way to a fairer Britain in which all citizens can be given a better stake in their future. We must have the political will to recalibrate our taxation system and our economy so it’s not rigged against the majority of our population. Our young are particularly badly hit by the current set-up.

“It shows that if everyone, including corporations, are made to pay their fair share and if tax loop holes are closed, we can have a taxation system that’s not rigged in favour of the rich against the rest of us.

“This is an important step towards achieving economic justice and giving back our young people a stake in our society and improving their futures.

“It's also a route-map away from this unnecessary era of austerity and neoliberalism towards an economy for the many and will inspire further support for Jeremy Corbyn’s vision for Britain.

“TSSA is delighted to have contributed our ideas to this report. And we are glad it has found a champion in the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.”
