HC Deb 19 November 1981 vol 13 c222W
Dr. J. Dickson Mabon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what date he expects to publish the annual report of the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Customs and Excise for the year ended 31 March 1981.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

Because of the delay in compiling some Customs and Excise statistics following the industrial action by civil servants earlier this year, the Commissioners of Customs and Excise will not be in a position to publish their annual report before spring 1982.
