The administration of the tax system is a matter for HM Revenue and Customs and it would not be appropriate for Treasury ministers to become involved in the administration of the tax system in specific cases.

The Chancellor has received representations from some Members of Parliament on introducing legislation to resolve the Roadchef dispute.

The Government keeps all tax legislation under regular review and any changes are considered in line with Government priorities.
