That this House condemns the recent comments by Google's chairman Eric Schmidt that he is proud of his company's tax avoidance, calling it capitalism, which demonstrates contempt for the UK Government and its taxpayers; and therefore calls on the Government to review its approach to corporation tax avoidance working alongside other affected countries, including making it a priority of the G8 presidency.
