HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c286W
21. Mr. Lennox-Boyd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the Treasury has completed the review of the experiment in the exchange of information between local branches of the Inland Revenue and the Customs and Excise; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

The review of the experiment has not been completed. We have undertaken to review the enforcement powers of the Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise. It would be premature at present to decide future policy about exchanges of information between the two Departments.
