Bill Cash – EU tax powers chipping away at British sovereignty

Bill Cash was quoted in the Daily Telegraph on 14 November 2010. The newspaper's Brussels correspondent, Bruno Waterfield, reported: 
"Under legislation tabled by the Coalition Government last week, any such amendments, reducing Britain’s control over taxation, would trigger a British referendum that would almost certainly lead to a No vote.
Bill Cash, the Conservative chairman of the influential Commons European scrutiny committee, said the demands would fuel Tory backbench fears that the EU was chipping away at British sovereignty.
'These matters raise grave concerns about the way in which the whole European project is being handled by the Coalition Government and the continuing drift,' he said."
