BMA back the Robin Hood Tax
The BMA has given its support to the Robin Hood Tax, the tiny financial transaction tax that could generate billions of pounds to fight poverty and climate change in the UK and around the world. Numerous other NGOs, trade unions and public figures have been promoting the tax for years, the BMA is pretty late to the game, but it is definitely a significant boost to the campaign.
The motion was bought to the BMA Annual Representatives Meeting by Khalil Secker, a medical student from Manchester and coordinator of Economic Governance for Health, Medsin’s economics and health group. Round of applause for Khalil and all the other Medsin members who have been working to have the Robin Hood Tax supported by the BMA!
