Maritime and Aviation Intelligence Team

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Maritime and Aviation Intelligence Team has been disbanded; and what its replacement is. (86562)

The intelligence arm of HM Revenue and Customs was re-organised in early 2006 to create a national structure focused on key risk areas. This involved the re-forming of teams, including the Maritime and Aviation Intelligence Team. The staff and their expertise have been retained, in teams that focus on risks posed by different types of transport, and in teams that deal with intelligence gathered from local sources of information.
