HC Deb 01 August 1972 vol 842 c92W
Mr. Barnes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a table showing the number of tax fraud cases uncovered each year since 1948, indicating how much tax was recovered in each year as a consequence.

Mr. Nott

Inland Revenue bear adversely on other unsecured creditors.

Mr. Nott

Employers are made aware of their obligation to make payment on or before 19th of each month and if payment is overdue the matter is followed up immediately. It is not the practice for the Inland Revenue to give long credit to firms accounting for tax deducted under PAYE.
