HM Revenue and Customs: Correspondence

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer why HM Revenue and Customs has not replied to the letter of 6 June from the hon. Member for Aylesbury on the case of Mr. P. J. E. of Aylesbury concerning tax credit claims for his disabled son and daughter-in-law; and when HM Revenue and Customs expects to reply. (155170)

[holding answer 12 September 2007]: The hon. Member's constituent's tax credit award is affected by the administrative problem with certain claims-as detailed in my written statement of 25 July 2007, Official Report, columns 62-63WS.

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is in the process of writing to those claimants whose awards are affected. An HMRC official at the tax credit office telephoned the hon. Member's parliamentary office on 4 September 2007 with an update and an interim reply was issued on 14 September 2007.
