Flipping Should be Exposed

John Barrett, Liberal Democrat MP for Edinburgh West, today challenged the Leader of the House Harriet Harman over MPs who have ‘flipped’ the designation of their main home to avoid the payment of capital gains tax.

During a Commons statement on the Kelly Report into MPs pay and allowances John Barrett warned that the public would not understand why the practice of ‘flipping’ looked set to be ignored.

John Barrett said:

“The trust of the public will never be regained until this issue is thoroughly investigated."
