To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many staff HM Revenue and Customs expects to make (a) voluntarily and (b) compulsorily redundant from each area of its activity in each year from 2013-14 to 2015-16; and how much HM Revenue and Customs has allocated to meet redundancy costs in each such year.
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has set no money aside for voluntary redundancy and compulsory redundancy in 2014-15 and 2015-16. If staff are required to be made voluntarily or compulsorily redundant, HMRC will need to meet the cost out of its existing funds.
Data for 2013-14 is provided as follows:
|Line of business||Grand total||Voluntary redundancies||Compulsory redundancies|
|Benefits and Credits||0||—||—|
|Enforcement and Compliance||19||18||1|
