HC Deb 28 January 1992 vol 202 c488W
Mr. McGrady

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give details of the rewards, financial or non-financial, for Her Majesty's inspectors of taxes arising as a result of interest, penalties and back duty investigations in which they were engaged; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maude

Inspectors of taxes, like other civil servants, are eligible to be considered for performance pay based on an appraisal of their overall performance over a period. But they do not receive any financial or non-financial rewards based on the results of back duty investigations in which they have been engaged.
