HC Deb 11 June 1998 vol 313 c654W
Jackie Ballard

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received regarding the administration of the vocational training tax relief scheme and the possible introduction of a composite form for use by training providers. [44913]

Dawn Primarolo

In an Inland Revenue Budget press release issued on 26 November 1996, comments were requested on a draft new form to replace the two eligibility forms in use for vocational training relief (VTR). The draft form was not welcomed by all training providers and, in the light of representations received, the Inland Revenue felt that they could not go ahead with the proposals as they stood.
