§ Mr. Timothy Smith
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to receive and to publish the report of the Keith committee on the enforcement powers of the revenue departments.
§ Mr. Ridley
I understand that Lord Keith intends to submit his report in two parts and that I may expect to receive the first part, dealing mainly with income tax and VAT, in time for publications early in the new 459W parliamentary Session. The second part of the report dealing with the remaining taxes and duties should be completed towards the end of the year.
