SHORT-SELLING OF SHARES
EDM #819
Tabled 17 January 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House believes that shorting of shares, whereby shares are borrowed for a defined period and for a fee by financial gamblers and then sold in the hope that they can be bought back later at a lower price, has no economic benefits whatsoever to the UK economy; and calls on the Government to tax this practice as it does other forms of gambling.
