Rich must pay fair share of tax

GRACE Dent (DebateNI, May 15) misses the point in defending Gary Barlow and his attempts to be more "tax-efficient".

There are thousands of higher-rate taxpayers who could avail of the multifarious tax-avoidance schemes. The point is the ethical and moral among us, who choose to live, work and own property in this relatively rich country, recognise society can only flourish if all pay their fair share of tax.

If all higher-rate taxpayers did the same, we would all pay a lot less tax.
