HC Deb 11 June 1998 vol 313 c654W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the cost of the reprint of taxable pay tables LR+B to D marked May 1998; and what was the reason for the mistake in the originals. [44337]

Dawn Primarolo

The cost of reprinting the tables was £127,363.

The user testing did not identify errors within the instructional guidance contained in the new Calculator Tables. However, the revised tables (identified as May 1998 Issue 2) were issued by 16 May 1998 in time for the implementation of the Budget changes on the first pay day after 17 May 1998 in line with the original implementation date.
