Revenue and Customs: Location

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the likely effect on economic development of proposals to move HM Revenue and Customs jobs away from Objective 1 areas. (150218)

My hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State and I continue to take a keen interest in the HMRC Change Programme and its possible impact on Objective 1 areas. My hon. Friend’s predecessor also met Treasury Ministers to discuss this issue.

The HMRC Change Programme is a genuine consultation; no official decision has yet been made on any Welsh HMRC office.
