The information requested falls within the responsibilities of the National Statistician who has been asked to reply.
Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated
As National Statistician I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question asking whether the Office for National Statistics (ONS) intends to classify Planning Gain Supplement as a tax. (114821)
ONS classifies transactions between sectors of the economy for the purposes of the national accounts. As yet ONS has not been asked to classify the proposed planning gain supplement. I anticipate that ONS will be asked to classify this proposal when it has been finalised.
