HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 cc106-7W
Mr. Hill

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made regarding the recommendation in the report of the review of the Inland Revenue collection service that the network of tax collection offices should be reduced.

Mr. Ridley

The Inland Revenue has taken full account of representations made since the report was completed and of discussions with the union and has prepared a programme of closures under which the number of tax collection offices will be reduced in the period to October 1986 from 256 to 135. Full details are contained in a press release, a copy of which is being placed in the House of Commons Library today.
