To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has any plans to revise the format of an income tax return.

Following its computerisation programmes for both self-employed taxpayers and employees, the Inland Revenue has over several years altered the layout of its tax returns for individuals so that they may be addressed and issued by machine.
