David Cameron 'misled the public' over offshore fund scheme, Jeremy Corbyn says


David Cameron has "misled the public" and "lost the trust of the British people" after admitting he had benefited from an offshore fund set up by his late father, Jeremy Corbyn said.

The Labour leader said the Prime Minister should make a statement to Parliament and give a "full account of all his private financial dealings" as he claimed the revelations raised issues about his "personal integrity".

The Prime Minister sold his and wife Samantha's shares in Blairmore Holdings - one of the tax haven schemes exposed in the Panama Papers leaks - in 2010 and insisted it was not set up as a tax dodge.

He paid income tax on dividends but the £19,000 profit on the sale was insufficient to attract capital gains tax.
