asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer., pursuant to the answer of 10 March, Official Report, column 142, if he will detail the terms and criteria for payments available under the experimental performance bonus scheme to Inland Revenue officers who are in direct contact with the public; how much has been actually paid out in 1986–87; and if he will make a statement.

There are no special terms or criteria for bonus payments to officers who are in direct contact with the public. Most eligible staff have contacts with the public to some extent. I am arranging to place in the House of Commons Library a copy of a statement setting out details of the performance bonus scheme as operated in the Inland Revenue in 1986–87 across the whole field of eligible staff. The total amount paid out in awards in 1986–87 was £508,740.
