Select Committee on Public Accounts Minutes of Evidence

Letter to the Committee from HM Customs and Excise

  In preparing briefing material for this hearing, we have been re-checking the figures in the NAO report. This has highlighted an error in Case Study 2 on page 20, which states that after the trial the judge issued confiscation orders of £50 million. This should, in fact, have said £500,000.

  While this doesn't detract from the thrust of the case study, which is concerned with the complexities involved in investigating and prosecuting cases, I wanted to make you aware of the correct figure. I have copied this note to the office of the Comptroller and Auditor General as well as the Treasury Officer of Accounts.
