Following interest from the Public Accounts Committee, I have welcomed the Comptroller and Auditor General, Sir John Bourn's commitment to carry out a review of the estimates of spirits duty fraud. The scope and timing of that review are a matter for him. I have ensured that he has been offered the full assistance of my officials.
