Conservative MEPs will today refuse to back moves which they fear would be a first step towards a common corporation tax - imposed right across Europe and decided in Brussels.
The worrying measures come in two reports put before the European Parliament today. Both set out ostensibly to tackle tax evasion - but they spoil that good intent with a raft of sweeping proposals which could be used to pave the way for a common tax regime.
Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is calling on local residents, businesses and the voluntary and community sectors from across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to help shape the future of the region as it lines up for future European funding.
European funding has already made a huge economic and social impact on businesses and residents in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly - thanks to the Objective One Programme (2000-2006) and the present Convergence Programme (2007-2013) which is currently delivering transformational projects such as the rollout of superfast fibre optic broadband.
