Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson meets Jeff Bezos to address Amazon’s corporation tax” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson said he raised the issue of taxation when he sat down with Jeff Bezos during his trip to New York for the UN General Assembly. But Mr Johnson also hailed a commitment from the world’s richest man to give $1billion to protect forests and remove carbon from the air. In interviews with broadcasters this afternoon, Mr Johnson said: ‘What I did say to him was that we in the UK feel very strongly that the internet giants need to be making their fair share of contribution in tax. ‘When you sell many many billions worth of goods in the UK then you’ve got to expect to be taxed fairly in the UK.’
