No change in Britain's plans for a digital tax - PM Johnson's spokesman

LONDON (Reuters) - There are no changes to Britain’s plans to pursue a digital services tax, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Monday.

The tax has been strongly opposed by Washington, which has said any such tax would be discriminatory and inappropriate.

Earlier, in its negotiating mandate for trade talks with the United States, Britain said it noted comments regarding digital tax and would “consider this as part of our policy development”.
