Archbishop of York in plea over 'tax dodging'


The Archbishop of York has said that if there was a halt to major companies avoiding taxes, "millions of people could free themselves from hunger".

Dr John Sentamu, was addressing a church service in St Macartin's Cathedral in Enniskillen on Sunday.

The archbishop was speaking ahead of the G8 summit, which will begin in County Fermanagh on Monday.

He said people could stop "tax dodging if our G8 governments step up to close the international tax loopholes".
