HC Deb 29 March 1979 vol 965 c345W
Mr. Bendall

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider allowing interest to be paid to taxpayers who, through no fault of their own, are having to wait a considerable length of time before receiving rebates.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

There is no provision in law for the payment of interest by HM Customs and Excise in respect of delayed repayments of value added tax—as there is none for interest on delayed payments of tax to the Department.
