HC Deb 16 July 1965 vol 716 c124W
Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many times the Inland Revenue have used their powers under the Finance Act, 1962 to obtain information concerning short-term Capital Gains Tax; and if he will set out in tabular form the source of inquiry.

Mr. MacDermot

These powers are available where there has been a suspected failure to make an adequate return. It would not be in the public interest to disclose particulars of their use.
