HC Deb 07 November 1972 vol 845 c122W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take action to ensure a speedy resolving by the Inland Revenue Department of matters pertaining to the affairs of Portal Engineering Company Limited, in liquidation, so as to facilitate the winding-up of this business.

Mr. Nott

The Inland Revenue does not wish to hold up the liquidation of this company but, for reasons which have been explained to the hon. Member, the speed with which settlement can be reached is not entirely in its hands.
