UK is no place for dirty money – PM

David Cameron: UK property no safe haven for 'dirty money'

Foreigners must not be able to buy UK homes with “plundered or laundered cash” as part a global effort to defeat corruption, David Cameron has said.

Speaking in Singapore, the prime minister vowed to expose the use of “anonymous shell companies” to buy luxury UK properties – often in London.

The PM said his message was “London is not a place to stash your dodgy cash”.

Corruption, he added, was “a cancer which is at the heart of so many of the world’s problems” and must be tackled.
