Welfare Tax Credits: ICT

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects the technical problems on the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) computer system which are preventing the resolution of the tax credits claim for 2004-05 by Mr. Marshall of Ferndown to be overcome; what the technical problems are; what estimate he has made of the number of HMRC customers who are similarly affected; and if he will make a statement. (206550)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by the Exchequer Secretary (Angela Eagle) on 7 February 2008, Official Report column 1374W, which explained that the Tax Credit Office wrote to him on 6 February 2008.
