Revenue and Customs: Kettering

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider (a) amalgamating the tax offices in Kettering into one building and (b) not relocating the staff to Northampton or Leicester. (146400)

HM Revenue and Customs are currently reviewing the Northampton urban centre, which includes Kettering, and no decisions have yet been made.

I will consider all representations that have been made to me on this subject from hon. Members, staff and Trade Unions alongside the impact on customers, staff and diversity before coming to a view. HMRC will retain an inquiry centre presence in Kettering irrespective of the outcome of the review.
