HC Deb 02 March 1987 vol 111 c481W
Mr. Allen McKay

asked the Attorney-General if he will take steps to ensure that all decisions of the special commissioners in tax cases are published as soon as they are made; and if he will make a statement.

The Solicitor-General

In December, the Board of Inland Revenue published a consultative document canvassing the issues, and inviting further views, on recommendations made in 1983 by the Keith committee on enforcement powers of the Revenue departments, including its recommendations that selected decisions of the special commissioners of income tax should be reported in anonymised form. The matter will be considered further in the light of comments received on the consultative document.
