Dedicated to the taxpayers of Britain, and the employees of Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC), who have to endure the monumental shambles that is HMRC.

Footing The Bill

Footing The Bill
The long a fruitless search last year, by the Metropolitan Police, for the missing data discs costs £473K.

It should of course come as no surprise to learn that the bill is to be paid for by the taxpayer.

Financial minister Jane Kennedy, in a written answer to Parliament, revealed the costs. The Met has said that it will try to recover the full costs from HMRC (who in turn will bill us).

Seemingly this was the most expensive lost-property inquiry ever in the UK.

Maybe Paul Gray, chairman of HMRC at the time the discs went missing, could be asked to make a contribution to the costs from his payout of £137,591 and his pension pot?

Tax does have to be taxing.
