§ Mr. Mandelson
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many inspectors were employed on corporation tax technical review in 1991–92, 1992–93 and 1993–94.
§ Mr. Dorrell
Excluding inspectors employed in specialist offices, the table sets out the total resource input into corporation tax technical review by inspectors working in the Inland Revenue's network of local offices for each of the years since 1991–92:
Man years 1991–92 745 1992–93 780 1993–94 749
The final figure for the year 1993–94 is not yet available. The figure quoted is based on resource usage for the nine months to January 1994 annualised. The final figure for the year is likely to be higher because the period from January to April tends to be a period when comparatively little annual leave is taken and more time is available for technical review.
