France's Hollande under pressure over tax plans
French President Francois Hollande is paying his first official visit to London, meeting both Prime Minister David Cameron and the Queen.
He is expected to discuss his plans for an EU-wide financial transactions tax with Mr Cameron, who is deeply opposed to the idea.
And it is on taxation that Mr Hollande is facing his first real test at home, with French business leaders urging him this weekend to rethink his plans to increase taxes.
