So how goes Boris's "crackdown" on tax avoidance?
Well so far he's failed to extend it to his own employees.
Asked by Labour AM Len Duvall "how many individuals across the GLA family receive their salary through a private company or as a “sole trader” as opposed to as a GLA employee paying PAYE tax?" he replied today that:
"In TfL as of May 2012 there are 1345 individuals being paid through a private company or as a sole trader."
So much for that crackdown.
