European Commission: Special Tax Rates
Michael Gove (Shadow Minister (Housing), Communities and Local Government; Surrey Heath, Conservative)
Dawn Primarolo (Paymaster General, HM Treasury; Bristol South, Labour)
The taxation of personnel employed by the EU institutions, including the Commission, is governed by the Protocol on the Privileges and Immunities of the European Communities. The UK Government are a party to the Protocol as it forms part of the treaty on the European Union and the treaty establishing the European Community and there are no current plans to amend it.
