asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many copies of Inland Revenue form SS 96(2) have been sent out to the public; at what cost in production and postage; and for what purpose.

About 11,000 each year at a printing cost of £45. There is no additional postage cost, as the form is usually sent with a tax return form. The form is sent to the widow of a public servant following his death. The information requested on the form is needed to enable the Public Departments tax office at Cardiff to ensure that the widow is correctly taxed.
