Date published: November 1 2013
Question for written answer E-010033/2013 to the Commission Rule 117 Sir Graham Watson (ALDE)
Subject: Gibraltar and collaboration on tax, financial services and money laundering matters
The International Monetary Fund’s report of May 2007 (Country Report No. 07/154) noted that ‘Gibraltar has a well-regulated financial sector. The Gibraltar authorities are concerned with protecting the reputation and integrity of Gibraltar as a financial centre, and are cognizant of the importance of adopting and applying international regulatory standards and best supervisory practices. Gibraltar has a good reputation internationally for cooperation and information sharing.’
Can the Commission state whether it has ever received a well-founded complaint regarding an alleged failure by the Government of Gibraltar to provide or exchange information or failure to collaborate generally on tax, financial services or money laundering matters?
EN E-010033/2013 Answer given by Mr Barnier on behalf of the Commission
