Revenue and Customs: Data Protection

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 24 January 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what (a) data and (b) physical security measures have been introduced at HM Revenue and Customs offices in Tyne and Wear since October 2007. (181008)

HMRC reviews its security measures on an ongoing basis.

Since October 2007, the offices in Tyne and Wear, in common with all HMRC offices, have implemented HMRC’s tighter controls on data security.

For more detail on these changes, I refer the hon. Member to Kieran Poynter’s interim report which was published on 17 December 2007 and is available in the Library of the House.
