The Foreign Secretary meets regularly with the Chancellor of the Exchequer to discuss a broad range of topics.

The Government is committed to tackling tax avoidance and evasion to ensure that everyone, no matter who they are, pays the right amount of tax at the right time.

Since 2010, the Government has introduced over 100 measures that clamp down on tax avoidance and evasion and has secured and protected an additional £200 billion that would have otherwise gone unpaid.
