David Cameron pledges action on tax avoidance

Nick Clegg and David Cameron have said they want to do more to stop tax avoidance by big companies.

The deputy PM told BBC Radio 4's Today programme he hoped there would be progress on an "anti-avoidance" tax rule in the Budget on 21 March.

The Prime Minister told an audience in Maidenhead a "tougher approach" was needed towards large firms with "fancy corporate lawyers".
