European Parliament vote in plenary on an FTT through enhanced cooperation
MEPs will vote in plenary on whether they will give their ascent to the group of 11 countries that want to move ahead with implementing a Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) under the ‘enhanced cooperation’ procedure. The vote will be preceded by a debate on Tuesday 11th December. Oxfam hopes that the European Parliament will vote in favour so that the coalition of countries who want to move forward with the FTT can do so quickly.
