Select Committee on Treasury Fourteenth Special Report


Letter from the Paymaster General to the Chairman of the Committee

Eighth Report from the Treasury Committee, Session 2001­02 (HC 681)

Inland Revenue: Self Assessment Systems

The Government welcomes the interest shown by the Committee in Self Assessment. As you know, the Inland Revenue is itself currently reviewing Income Tax Self Assessment. The Committee's report makes a valuable and important contribution to improving the system and many of the recommendations involve work currently being considered. I attach the Government's detailed response to the Committee's recommendations.

At my appearance before the Committee, I offered to let them know about the Self Assessment Review's progress and I will write to you on this separately in a few weeks.

May I just finish by thanking the Committee for what I thought was an extremely useful exercise.
