HC Deb 13 December 1974 vol 883 c277W
Mr. Normanton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in the light of the concern among members of the public at the complexity of income tax forms, what steps he is taking to effect a simplification of them and a reduction in their number.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

Every effort is made to keep the income tax forms as simple as possible consistent with the complexity of the law and the need to provide sufficient guidance to taxpayers on their completion. The Inland Revenue keeps the number and the content of the tax forms under continuous review.
