Since becoming a Member of Parliament, whilst serving on the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee and during my four years as Labour's Shadow Business Secretary, I have argued for tax transparency, and for tax avoidance and evasion by corporates and individuals to be addressed.
In recent days there has been a justifiable, high level of interest in the tax affairs of elected representatives following the Panama revelations. Therefore, like others who have voluntarily released their tax returns, I am publishing here my most recent tax return for the 2014/2015 tax year - I will do so on my website on an annual basis from now on after submitting my tax return to HMRC.
I have not received any request from any media organisation or otherwise to publish this information but have done so of my own volition. For the avoidance of doubt, I am not in receipt nor have I ever been in receipt of any income from investments in any tax haven jurisdiction.
