  • Written Answers — Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Remote Working 18 May 2020

    To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of permitting HMRC staff to continue working from home after the covid-19 lockdown to minimise (a) redundancies and (b) excessive travel times to Regional Centres.
  • Written Answers — Treasury: Revenue and Customs: Coronavirus 18 May 2020

  • Covid-19: Strategy 11 May 2020

    I hope the Prime Minister will join me in thanking the civil service, particularly employees in HMRC and DWP who are processing payments.
