Revenue and Customs: Chorley

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will reassess the decision to close the HM Revenue and Customs office at Lingmell House in Chorley. (210216)

My answers to the hon. Gentleman's earlier questions of 17 March 2008, Official Report, column 896W, explained that the decision to close the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) office in Chorley was made after extensive consultation and detailed feasibility work. Nothing has changed to warrant revisiting the decision. HMRC's plans do not envisage any business requirement to retain the Chorley office, with the exception of its inquiry centre services, which will continue to be offered either from the current building or one nearby.
