The business secretary of UK has also offered a tax on the oil companies that are backed by the Labour party, as the one policy, which will definitely not find the favour with the UK ministers.

Kwasi Kawrteng said that, they now believe a windfall tax is going to be a tax on the jobs and it is also going to destroy investment and will also be adding it to the uncertainty in the oil markets, and it is also going to be a complete wrong message for sending to the investors.
