Tax Evasion

Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many HM Revenue and Customs staff administered the provisions of anti-tax avoidance legislation (a) in 2007, (b) in 2008 and (c) on the latest date for which figures are available. (281659)

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) staff use whatever parts of the tax code are relevant to help people and businesses pay the right amount of tax and, where necessary, to tackle tax avoidance, evasion and fraud. HMRC is unable to provide information regarding the specific number of resources deployed on the separate elements of that work.
