HC Deb 09 August 1966 vol 733 cc288-9W
39. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that, notwithstanding no statutory authority to require divulgence by taxpayers in respect of chargeable assets for capital gains duty held at 6th April, 1965, Her Majesty's Inspectors of Taxes are requesting such information and that taxpayers are often gratuitously submitting information concerning such chargeable assets; and whether he will now instruct Her Majesty's Inspectors of Taxes throughout the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to cease requesting such information.

Mr. Diamond

One or two isolated instances have come to notice. I am satisfied that no general instruction is needed.
