Asked if the Government was troubled by the representations from the US about non-dom tax issues, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) replied that these were all matters for the Treasury; there was a consultation ongoing and it was best to speak to the them.

Asked if the Prime Minister was happy that the Chancellor was doing a good job, the PMS replied yes.

Asked if there were concerns about predictions regarding the city, the PMS said that, as was made clear at the time, the issue in relation to the non-doms proposal was that it would only apply to people who had been in the country for more than seven years; people who had been in the country for more than seven years would either have to pay the charge or go fully into the UK tax system.

Put that the concern was that there would be a negative knock-on effect, the PMS replied that detailed or technical questions about tax law should be put to the Treasury.
