just can't agree on the use of the controversial pesticide life to save. the paradise papers are sparking action from the e.u. finance commission appear muscovy she says member states can and will do much more to fight tax havens a top priority is the creation of a blacklist to name and shame jurisdictions that cater to wealthy firms and individuals yet the e.u. has been working for two years on similar measures with limited success consensus remains a challenge especially among members with low tax rates of their own the head of the european commission john claude is himself accused of aiding tax avoidance as luxembourg's prime minister. my colleague daniel winter put it to mr muscovy see that this gives the commission's zero credibility in fighting tax dodging. absolutely false this commission has done more on fighting back through the tax
evasion than all the commissions in the previous twenty years you know if you employ you don't think it had waited minutes it's not due to the fact that this or that person ids here due to the fact that we are in the new when the new area new period which is a period of transparency i have proposed that i am the tax commissioner and i've got full trust of wrong could you or i act in these name i have proposed eleven proposals directives among them six have been adopted which is not that easy if you consider what is the rule of unanimity inside the e.u. we have the best treating ever for a commission chose to commissioners my colleague not going to myself who are really i think a team which is dedicated to find a text of massive tax avoidance you can say that in two thousand and three he encouraged amazon to put its tax base in luxembourg i'm talking about the president
of the commission and job president of the commission this commission we are i can say that quietly but very confidently the champions of fighting tax fraud and tax evasion we talked about this is a commission proposal i will mention two other proposals the one is the first one is is that i think that the activity of those intermediaries legal advisors. fiscal advisors or banks it must be made transparent to the next administration and the third one is that we have already established a country by country reporting this is one of the six directives i mentioned but between tax administrations i would like it to become public i think there is no a position between investment which we want to protect the event you want to look at her and say yes because prince will receive it. burnsy is the only way to tackle with those phenomena if we can reach our goal but when you are addressing what you
are looking for how will this affect the average person in europe who is watching this right now if you do manage to get what you want and close these tax loopholes and blacklist these tax havens i think that what we are attending now with those paradise papers which is a scandal but probably those practices are mostly legal but they are not moral this cannot be possible why because it exists only because it is and certainly it is revealed if it is transparent if it is public it is not possible anymore you know all those people all those structures all those companies all those states which today named and shamed after the products paper if their activity would be immediately made public then they would be much much more for that's why transparency is the massive destruction weapon against tax evasion against tax
aggressive tax planning and that's why this commission is so so strong on for the you could commission right and you mentioned the threat the potential threat of sanctions what are we talking about here are we talking about fines directly for a few who try and squirrel away their money in tax havens are we all it's ok because unless there's a significant legal threat they're going to continue to say tax avoidance is a misdemeanor we're not talking about firms we're talking about states when you have a blacklist of tax even you're talking about the states or territories we've mentioned some of them getting to the ground but there are those states will be which will be used to denote that we will have a very. strong list strong by pleased the sanctions must be linked to our own capacity to their own linkage with the union i would mention for example a well create deals or multilateral or bilateral agreements that we have got with them that can be suspended but the best things in the
strongest tension is the name and shame ok i really mean nobody nobody will like to be there and in one word are we now finally going to see significant change and cracking down on tax havens under your leadership in this case it's not up to me to decide that you know the commission as a prominent role because we have the monopoly of the initiative and we have taken so many engineers i mentioned three of them and believe me if they become decisions that would be different but but the ball is in the camp of the member states it's up to them to decide they have to decide they have to deliver and i will have a vision and i really have to deliver value i hold the end of this year two thousand and seventeen is the year the european commission's financial affairs commission here must be seized with my colleague daniel into e.u. ministers have failed in the latest bid to agree on a new five year license for the controversial wheat killer glyphosate the stalemate
comes just weeks before the current lies and expires laughs it is vital to the farming methods that put everything from sugar to bread on the dining table supporters say it's both cheap and easy to use critics say it's not hundred percent proven that it does not pose a health risk risk to humans. this is how some people envision the e.u.'s relationship with michael sings they accuse the bloc of being in bed with a chemical maker months until. studies on the link between life estate and cancer have come to differing conclusions in twenty fifteen the world health organization said the week killer probably causes cancer a u.n. study and one sponsored by monsanto came to different conclusions life estate is the most widely used weed killer in the world some farmers in europe say they can't do without us. we cannot run a system like this where we're growing public crops. to keep the fields green right for the winter we cannot do that we are going to say we can come in here straight
off to harvest the power and then it was brown a would suffer the loss of the soil . some economists say a ban could have a major economic impact. so in the event of a. large shift in terms of the composition due case fields a shift away from wheat potential twenty percent decline and fifteen percent decline in arable crops for what we see then is that farmers incomes will fall by the chain if before cost one hundred forty million pounds but those who oppose glyphosate reject such arguments they say that when it comes to health regulators cannot afford to take any risks. so a very controversial issue there are many questions have to be taken into consideration first of all is there real health risks for consumers but also are the livelihoods of farmers under threat can or should modern agriculture live without kill us let's cross over to deal catherine martin who is following the
negotiations in brussels and joins us from there catherine why are they are now able to agree. well the main problem here in europe is really that there is we have conflicting studies and conflicting conflicting signs whether to life as it is harmful are not and in europe there are two kinds of schools of thoughts how to deal with that difficult issue there is one in group saying in doubt leave it out and the other group is saying in doubt leave it in and it in addition to that the to one of the main farming nations germany and france they are not on the same page which makes it really difficult to reach a majority frons us against germany is more industry friendly of a have germany as a industry look look asian and as a jain buyer and the potential merger of us once and in the early two thousand and eighteen just we can assume that there is
a vital interest to use still on the market so it is a slippery it's a slippery slope in your eyes and there's some heavy lobbying going on behind the scenes. yes of course it is but it's not only one center this is the biggest lobbying group in europe are still of the european farmers they say they really are afraid with the glaive for said band that they will have heavy losses regarding the production and the exports but they already are also say regarding the consumerist if they don't have they will say they will take another week killer and this might be even more harmful for the consumer has and this is a big issue so without guy for said it's not without pesticides and this is their point. in the brussels thank you. and in the latest installment from our regular series bad taste for every day here's another household appliance you didn't know you needed this toilet is
