A transaction tax on banks would raise as much as $400bn a year (£250bn; 291.2bn euros), campaigners have said.

Supporters say money raised could help protect public services and jobs, fight poverty and tackle climate change.

The campaign is backed by almost 50 groups, including the TUC and Oxfam, as well as big names like actor Bill Nighy and film maker Richard Curtis.
