David Cameron says Gary Barlow deserves to keep OBE despite tax avoidance
David Cameron believes that Gary Barlow should keep his OBE even after it emerged that he invested in a tax avoidance scheme.
During his appearance on 'Good Morning Britain', the Prime Minister said that the OBE was in respect of the work done by the 43-year-old Take That singer and he doesn't agree with chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee, Margaret Hodge suggestion of giving the award back was unnecessary, BBC News reported.
He added that he's against "aggressive tax avoidance schemes", it's illegal and Barlow will definitely have to pay back the money.
Gary Barlow, along with the three members of the band, was among about 1,000 people who put money into schemes allegedly supporting the music industry.
