To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer

(1) what assessment his Department has made of the likely effects of the abolition of the Construction Industry Scheme team on (a) the incidence of employees being wrongly designated as self-employed and (b) levels of revenue accruing to the Exchequer; what the outcome of that assessment was; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the assessment;

(2) what risk analysis his Department conducted in respect of the proposed abolition of the Construction Industry Scheme team; what the outcome of that analysis was; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the analysis.

The Construction Industry Scheme was not abolished, but continues under a different structure within local compliance.

The analysis was built from a number of intelligence briefings and strategic intelligence assessments which were protectively marked and only to be viewed with the permission of the author. It would not be appropriate to place the analysis in the Library.
