Tories to compel peers and MPs to pay UK tax
"Peers and MPs will have to pay tax in Britain or be forced to give up their seat should the Tories win the next election in a move designed to end the controversy over its deputy chairman, Lord Ashcroft, and the high-profile candidate, Zac Goldsmith.
"In a surprise announcement, David Cameron promised to rush through a law banning anyone with non-domiciled or non-resident tax status from the Commons or the Lords. The Tory leader has been dogged by questions about the tax status of Lord Ashcroft. His pledge also came on the day that Mr Goldsmith, his adviser on the environment and parliamentary candidate for Richmond Park, was accused of avoiding millions in tax through his "non-dom" status."
