He will deny rumours of a full electoral pact or even merger between the two parties.Speaking at his party’s annual conference in Liverpool yesterday, Clegg also backed calls for a review of the coalition’s immigration cap after concerns from the City that it is harming the economy. He said he agreed with Vince Cable’s dissent on the policy.The government will launch a crackdown on offshore and online tax dodgers and smugglers in a bid to save £7bn a year by 2015, it was also announced. Ministers are to earmark £900m to fund a new team of investigators to probe offshore tax evasion. They will also use the cash to create cyber tax crime teams and to better detect alcohol and tobacco smuggling.Tax evasion costs the UK about £7bn a year, avoidance costs a similar amount and attacks on the tax system by organised criminals cost about £5bn. The measures are expected to form part of HM Revenue & Customs’ settlement in the government’s spending review, which it will announce on 20 October.Liberal Democrat chief secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said: “Tax avoidance and evasion are unacceptable at the best of times but in today’s circumstances, it is morally indefensible.” Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgcenter_img Tags: NULL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.com Show Comments ▼ whatsapplast_img
