§ 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.
