HC Deb 19 July 1968 vol 768 c300W
Sir B. Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether all entries required for the recording of tax payments by individuals under the Pay As You Earn scheme are still made by hand; and what is the approximate number of manual entries that are made in a year.

Mr. Harold Lever

All such entries in Tax Offices are made by hand but P.A.Y.E. records are gradually being transferred to computers. No statistics are kept of manual entries but there are nearly 25 million individuals within the P.A.Y.E. system.
