Goodison Review

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what the estimated cost of implementation of the Goodison Review is, broken down by main budget headings; (140766)

(2) what progress his Department has made in implementing the recommendations in the Goodison Review for which his Department has responsibility; which recommendations relating to direct taxation have been implemented; and which of the recommendations in the review have yet to be implemented.

The Government implemented a number of Sir Nicholas Goodison’s recommendations and continue to keep those relating to direct taxation under review.

There are a variety of tax reliefs available to encourage private and corporate giving and the Government will, over the summer, consult with the sector on measures to increase the take up of Gift Aid, in addition to conducting an awareness raising campaign.

The information on costs requested is not available.
