Financial crime: Parliament to establish new special committee 

A new special committee on financial crime, tax evasion and avoidance, building on the work of three previous ones, is to be established on Thursday.

MEPs are likely to back the creation of the special committee, which was proposed partly in response to last year’s “Paradise Papers” revelations, but has yet to get an official name. It will pursue the work of the TAXE 1 and 2 committees, as well as the recently-ended PANA inquiry.

It will have 45 members and a 12-month mandate to start once MEPs give their assent.

Vote:  Thursday, 1 March
