§ Mr. Tilley
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what consultations his officials had with the retired deputy head of the Inland Revenue's inquiry branch with regard to his publication "Tax Evasion—the Law and the Practice"; whether he authorised the inclusion of any classified material; and if he is satisfied that no disclosure of official information has been included in the book.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
[pursuant to his reply, 23 June 1980, c. 59]: The Inland Revenue was not consulted before publication; nor was authorisation sought. No classified information appears to be included.
