The Cayman Islands is scrapping a plan to impose a direct income tax on thousands of expatriates working in the British Caribbean territory, famed as a no-tax financial centre.

Premier McKeeva Bush issued a terse statement saying his proposed tax was "off the table and will not be implemented". He did not say what alternative revenues might replace it.
