§ Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what action he proposes to take, having regard to the fact that the sums lost by tax evasion are 10 times greater than those lost by social security frauds.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
My hon. Friend will be aware that the Finance Act 1976 strengthened the enforcement powers of the Inland Revenue. My right hon. Friend is continuing to keep the problem of tax evasion and the measures required to reduce it under review.
