Tax avoidance clampdown warning from Jane Hutt

There will be a clampdown on tax avoidance and tax evasion once powers are devolved in 2018, Finance Minister Jane Hutt has warned.

The warning came at the launch of a consultation on how the landfill disposal tax will be managed.

It is one of three taxes - including stamp duty tax and the aggregates levy - to come under the Welsh government's control in 2018.

It is predicted the three taxes will raise £307m by 2018/19.

Ms Hutt told BBC Wales she wants to see "a strong Welsh rule on tax avoidance and tax evasion" in order to "make sure that all of our Welsh taxes are paid as they help pay for public services".
