From October 2006 to December 2007, HMRC seizures of hand-rolling tobacco over 50 kgs were analysed, of which approximately 86 per cent. by weight was industry manufactured and 14 per cent. was counterfeit.
Although HMRC do not routinely estimate the counterfeit share of the illicit cigarette market, they do publish in HMRC's annual report their own analysis of the provenance of large cigarette seizures (individual seizures in excess of 100,000 sticks). This information explains the proportion of such seizures found to be counterfeit and the principal non-counterfeit brands seized.
Sarah Teather: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the number of people who will be affected in each parliamentary constituency by the proposed amendments to income shifting legislation proposed in the consultation document of 6 December 2007. 
Angela Eagle: No such estimates have been made. Whole economy estimates of the number of businesses that will be affected by the proposed new income shifting legislation are published in the consultation stage impact assessment in Annex C of the consultation document.
Mr. Brady: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many times he, his Ministers or his officials have met representatives of (a) Friends of the Earth, ( b) Greenpeace, (c) the World Wildlife Fund, (d) AirportWatch, (e) the Aviation Environment Federation, (f) HACAN Clearskies, (g) Stop Stansted Expansion, (h) Plane Stupid, (i) the Council for the Protection of Rural England, (j) the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, (k) the Woodland Trust and (l) Enoughsenough to discuss issues related to (i) the sustainable growth and (ii) environmental taxation of aviation in the UK since 2007. 
Angela Eagle: Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors as part of the process of policy development and delivery. As was the case with previous Administrations, it is not the Government's practice to provide details of all such meetings.
However, section D1 of the Government's consultation document on aviation duty published on 31 January lists a number of organisations which had been part of the informal consultation process prior to publication. We welcome representations from all organisations in response to the consultation document which may be viewed at:
Ben Chapman: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer after what period of time HM Revenue and Customs sends reminders to companies informing them of their obligation to send belated payments of tax. 
Angela Eagle: The main company taxes are corporation tax and VAT. In addition, companies are required to pay to HMRC PAYE and national insurance contributions deducted from their employees' remuneration, and in some cases to make these payments on behalf of their employees.
Each tax is administered under different legislation and, as such, the timing of reminders for payment for each duty may differ. Comprehensive guidance for companies required to make payments is available on the HM Revenue and Customs website and is accessible at:
In such cases the payments are allocated to a suspense account while inquiries are made to establish the account or record that is to be credited. Where such a payment is made on the due date for the tax, it is therefore possible that a reminder will be issued while the payment is in the suspense account.
Every payment application or notice to pay issued by HMRC carries full How to pay guidance. This clearly sets out the information needed to allocate payments correctly. An expanded version of this guidance is available on the HMRC website and is accessible on
Mr. Gordon Prentice: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people did not return their tax returns on 31 January 2007; and how much was (a) imposed and (b) received in resultant fines. 
Angela Eagle: 1,007,012 taxpayers did not file self assessment returns by 31 January 2007. It is not possible to derive the amount of penalties imposed because penalties are capped to the amount of tax due where that is less than the penalty. The final amount received is not yet available.
Mr. Chope: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects that the technical problem on the HM Revenue and Customs computer system, preventing conclusion of the 2004-05 tax credits claim of Mr. Marshall of Ferndown, will be resolved; what the nature of the problem is; how many claimants are similarly affected; and if he will make a statement. 
Dr. Cable: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many people did not submit a tax return before the 31 January deadline when required to in each year since 1997; and if he will make a statement.
