asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the number of back duty inquiries settled in the last 10 years for which information is available, and the estimated number of such inquiries which will be settled in the current year.

My hon. Friend will find particulars of back duty settlements for the ten years to 31st March, 1967 in Table 9 on page 39 of the 110th Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue (Cmnd. 3508). The number of such settlements in the year ended 31st March, 1968 was 10,487. I cannot forecast the number for the current year.
