asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many senior grade tax officers have resigned from the Inland Revenue in each of the last five financial years; how many of these were under 30 years of age; and by what approximate number the Revenue is undermanned in this grade.

I assume the hon. Member refers to Tax Officers (Higher Grade). The figures are:

Total resignations from established T.O.H.G. postsResignation of T.Os. (H.G.) under 30 years of age
1961–62177142
1962–63179153
1963–64211182
1964–65205178
1965–66179166
The figures include 192 women who resigned their appointments on marriage but continue in a temporary capacity.On the complement at 1st May, there is a shortage of 27 in the grade.
