HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 cc182-3W
Mr. Michael Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the London pay-as-you-earn offices have moved from Bootle to Shipley; and why the new envelope in which employers send in their payroll deductions is half as large again as the old envelope.

Mr. Peter Rees

The work previously carried out at the London PAYE accounts office, Bootle has been transferred to the accounts office, Shipley as part of the programme of centralising the collection of PAYE into two computerised offices, of which one is at Shipley.

The envelope supplied to employers for sending remittances in respect of PAYE deductions from their employees has been increased in size so that it will not normally be necessary to fold cheques which have to be passed through automated sorting equipment.
