Finance Act 2003

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many offences were recorded under the Finance Act 2003 in each year since its entry into force, broken down by offence; and what percentage of these offences (a) resulted in court proceedings against suspected perpetrators, (b) led to a conviction and (c) resulted in a sanction detection. (196011)

The information requested is not available. Offences under this legislation are recorded in one of the following offence classifications:

Offences against Laws relating to Customs, Excise and Inland Revenue; or

Disclosure, Obstruction, False or Misleading Statements.

These offences cannot be separately identified from other offences within those classifications. As a result, information on the percentage which resulted in court proceedings and convictions for those offences cannot be provided.
