The Netherlands Government will attach conditions to its support of the FTT. Some experts say these conditions will make it hard to reach a consenus on the plan.

"[They add] yet another layer to the complexity of an already half-baked attempt to implement a EU-wide tax.

"Critics are concerned that the implmentation of the tax will result in a trading dichotomy across Europe."
