HC Deb 20 May 2004 vol 421 c1199W
Mr. Prisk

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when a decision was made to proceed with the Inland Revenue's e-Government programme; and what consultation took place before the decision to proceed with the programme. [174027]

Dawn Primarolo

The Inland Revenue started to develop 'e' channels in March 1999 in response to the Modernising Government White Paper and the Chancellor's Budget announcement that internet filing of tax returns for individuals was to be developed. The 'e' services Programme was more formally established in April 2001.
