Deloitte responds to Committee report

Bill Dodwell, head of tax policy at Deloitte, has said "we help companies pay the tax that is due" after a report from the Public Affairs Committee criticised accountancy firms.

A ban on external accountants working inside government, to stop them telling clients about tax loopholes they have found, has been urged by MPs.

The MPs said HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was in a "battle it cannot win" against the accountancy firms who have thousands of people giving advice.
