Probe Cameron family and all others after Panama Papers leak, urges Corbyn

Corbyn: "high time we got tough on tax havens"

An independent investigation must be held into the tax affairs of those implicated in the Panama Papers data leak, including David Cameron's family, Jeremy Corbyn has demanded.

The Labour leader said the leaks had exposed tax avoidance on an "industrial scale".

Downing Street has insisted that the business affairs of Mr Cameron's late father Ian, which were detailed in the Panama leak, were a private matter.

But Mr Corbyn told reporters in Harlow: "It's a private matter in so far as it's a privately held interest, but it's not a private matter if tax has not been paid.

"So an investigation must take place, an independent investigation."
