HC Deb 21 July 1952 vol 504 c10W
Sir G. Hutchinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what authority Her Majesty's Inspectors of Taxes demand from taxpayers the production of Post Office Savings Bank books.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Inspectors of Taxes have to make such inquiries as are necessary to ensure that liability to tax is correctly determined. If my hon. Friend has cases in mind in which he considers that improper requests for information have been made, and will give me particulars, I should be glad to look into them.
