This is the report of a committee chaired by Professor James Meade, whose remit was to make a study of the UK tax system as whole. The IFS asked the Committee to produce a statement of the objectives of taxation, including an assessment of any conflicts between different ojectives; to comment on the present system in the light of these objectives; and to make recommendations for reform.
