asked the Chanceller of the Exchequer, pursuant to the reply to the right hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne on Monday 24 March, what recent changes he has observed in the promptness of payments of pay-as-you-earn, national insurance contributions, and value added tax.

[pursuant to his reply, 31 March 1980, c. 84]: Apart from an increase in the amounts outstanding towards the end of December 1979, due mainly to the effects of the holiday, including postal delays, I have observed no marked changes recently in the promptness of payments of pay-as-you-earn and national insurance contributions. Over the past four months there has been some increase in the amounts of value added tax paid by the due date and within one month.
