Corporation Tax in Northern Ireland: Government Response to the Committee's First Report - Northern Ireland Affairs Committee Contents

Appendix 1: Letter from the Exchequer Secretary, HM Treasury to the Chair of the Committee

I enclose a copy of the Government's response to your Committee's report on Corporation Tax in Northern Ireland. The Government has also published its response to its consultation on 'Rebalancing the Northern Ireland Economy', which is available on the Treasury website.

I am very grateful for the Committee's contribution to this important debate and extensive engagement on this issue. The Government has established a joint ministerial working group, comprising of ministers of the UK Government and the NNE, to consider issues raised by the consultation. I hope that NIAC will continue to be involved in this issue and I look forward to working with you further on these questions.

I am copying this letter to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

Mr David Gauke MP

Exchequer Secretary, HM Treasury
