To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the Independent Loan Charge Review: report on the policy and its implementation, published in December 2019, if he will make an assessment of the adequacy of access to information given to Lord Morse to enable him to report on HMRC’s approach to implementing the Loan Charge.

The Independent Loan Charge Review, led by Lord Morse, drew upon all the available evidence and expert advice to consider the appropriateness of the Loan Charge as a policy response, and its impact on individuals, reflecting the main concerns that had been raised by MPs and campaigners. Lord Morse had full discretion over how the review was run, which stakeholders he engaged with, and the recommendations he made.

The Government recognised the concerns raised by the Review and accepted all but one of the Review’s 20 recommendations. The Government implemented a number of changes to the Loan Charge which were enacted in Finance Act 2020. On 3 December 2020, HMRC published a full report to Parliament on the implementation of the review recommendations. This report set out how HMRC has delivered the 19 recommendations which were accepted by the Government.
