UPDATE: Ben Gummer has now presented his Bill for Statements of Taxation to the House of Commons this afternoon. Hansard have a record of Mr Gummer’s speech and the subsequent Opposition (somewhat pathetic) retort here: http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm/cmtoday/cmdebate/c_03.htm
Ipswich MP Ben Gummer will today introduce a ten-minute rule bill to provide every taxpayer an annual statement of where their hard-earned tax is being spent. How much on defence, education, health etc.

Supposedly, Chancellor George Osborne likes the idea so it might be one of those ten-minute rule bills that is more than just hot air.
