§ Mr. Les Huckfield
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received from the hon. Member for Nuneaton seeking a deferment of some of the tax payments owed to the Inland Revenue by football clubs; and if he will publish his reply in the Official Report.
§ Mr. Ridley
[pursuant to his reply, 26 January 1983, c. 446]: My right hon. and learned Friends has received one such letter from the hon. Member for Nuneaton dated 24 January 1983 concerning the affairs of Nuneaton borough football club. I shall be writing to the hon. Member shortly. There are difficulties in publishing correspondence concerning the tax affairs of individual companies or taxpayers.
