HC Deb 05 February 1996 vol 271 cc9-10W
Mr. Mike O'Brien

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment he has made of the percentage of information on the Inland Revenue's Corporation's tax pay and file system which(a) is unreliable, (b) is inaccurate, (c) is not updated and (d) omits interest charges. [11121]

Mr. Jack

The Inland Revenue continually assesses the performance of the CT pay and file system. There are no significant problems with the reliability and accuracy of the information which the system handles.

A recently identified software problem in the updating of information used by collectors of taxes—including information on interest charges—is scheduled to be fixed early this month.
