HC Deb 03 March 1982 vol 19 c151W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of tax lost through moonlighting by employed people; and if he will take measures to ensure that all employees declare their full annual income.

Mr. Ridley

No reliable estimate can be made of the tax lost. It has already been announced that the Inland Revenue is to redeploy some 400 staff to counter tax evasion, including moonlighting, whether by employed, unemployed or self-employed people. It is hoped by this redeployment to learn more about moonlighting.
