HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c690W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Inland Revenue circulated a notice of pending criminal trial giving the name, address and professional designation of an accountant to be charged at Leeds Crown court with submitting false balance sheets with intent to defraud the Revenue; whether it is normal practice to circulate details of those to be prosecuted; and why, when the Revenue abandoned the prosecution, no notice to this effect was circulated and a profession journal or inquiry at Somerset House was told that a full report was not available as the solicitor concerned was engaged on another case.

Mr. Robert Sheldon:

I will let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
