HC Deb 24 March 1980 vol 981 c444W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether or not it is the practice of income tax inspectors to inform taxpayers selected for in-depth investigation that they have been selected for this form of investigation at an early point in the process; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

The inspector of taxes will inquire into a return or accounts where he has some reason to be dissatisfied. If he remains dissatisfied he will as soon as possible explain why and ask for any further information needed.
