HC Deb 17 May 1966 vol 728 c203W
3. Mr. Kitson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on how many occasions, since the passing of the Finance Act, 1965, his Department has sent an inspector of taxes to attend auction sales to take particulars of sale prices and articles; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Diamond

Once. I see no reason why Revenue officials should not attend public auctions in appropriate cases.
