Dr. McDonald

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in the Official Report the legal opinion on which the decision was taken to change the basis of taxation of building societies on capital gains on gilts.

Mr. Ian Stewart

In accordance with long-standing practice, the Government do not intend to publish the legal advice which they have received on this matter.
