Taxes for Peace Bill scheduled in Parliament!

by Shaughan Dolan ~ July 1st, 2016. Filed under: News.
After many months of preparation here in the Conscience office, we are pleased to report that our Taxes for Peace Bill has been scheduled for parliamentary debate on the 19th of July 2016. Put forward as a 10 Minute Rule Bill by Ruth Cadbury MP, the Bill calls for a new tax structure that would allow conscientious objectors to redirect the military portion of their taxes into a fund designated for non-military security. This change to the law would allow all individuals to contribute to national security with a clear conscience!
