To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 15 July 2013, Official Report, column 525W on British Overseas Territories, how many action plans from the Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies have been published to date; where such plans have been published; and what steps he plans to take against those jurisdictions that fail to publish action plans by the end of this year.

Each of the Crown Dependencies and the Overseas Territories with a financial centre has published an action plan setting out the concrete steps they will take to ensure greater clarity about who really owns, controls, and benefits from companies and legal arrangements in their jurisdictions.
