NAO Response Re Lost 10,000 Counter Avoidance Files


I have just received this response from the NAO's Director HMRC Value for Money, wrt my email to them concerning the lost 10,000 counter avoidance files.
 "Thank you for your email of 6March, in which you asked whether the National Audit Office was aware of the loss of 10,000 counter-avoidance files of high net worth individuals by HMRC in 2014. You provided a link to your Freedom of Information request to HMRC on the topic, in which you asked HMRC for further details on the nature of the alleged incident. I am replying to your message as the NAO Director with responsibility for the audit of HMRC’s performance.....

As was the case in 2014, there is currently no formal requirement for HMRC to inform the NAO of data breaches, such as the one you refer to in your email.In 2014 HMRC would have had to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 which specifies roles and responsibilities and any reporting requirements. The Act did not require Departments to report breaches to the NAO.....

Although there is no formal requirement to notify the NAO of data breaches, we do, however, expect to be made aware of any breaches that have occurred through our annual financial audit of HMRC. As part of our financial audit, we review papers and minutes from HMRC's Board, Executive Committee and Audit Committee. We also review the disclosures in HMRC's Annual Report.3The data-related incidents which HMRC reported in its Annual Reports in 2013-14 and 2014-15 are outlined in the table below.4HMRC did not make reference to the alleged incident which you have raised, and our review of minutes for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 financial years did not identify any information which was inconsistent with the incidents as reported...."
Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. No surprises here Ken. Simpson Nelthorp and Richardson were a tight unit when it came to covering up. Richardson didn't even inform Jenny Grainger. They banned anyone in Counter Avoidance from talking about it on email.

  4. Can you do a FOI request on how many times the Police have been called to any Bootle and Liverpool Tax Offices in the last ten years for 'suspected' criminal behaviour of any sort?

    If a previous FOI request was refused as it identified individuals. Could it be worded to ask just for number of instances (if any) and the nature of suspected crime(s)?

  5. Reminds me of Hmrc/civil service casework team in Manchester. Some bullying cowards Neil, Angela - thick as pig shit, such of the earth types but masters of covering up corruption and law-breaking with, seemingky, the full support (sir) Jonathan Thompson. Would be interesting to know whether they realise their own conduct could amount to misconduct in public office. Naughty, naughty. Given the consequences their behaviour is not forgiven or forgottem.

  6. Still no answer to the actual FoI Ken? Wasn't the deadline 3rd April? Bet they don't respond for ages.

    Also what has happened to Paul Garlick? His Twitter has gone silent...

    1. Interesting post, another bully.

    2. Who is Alex? S/He must have done something right if Simpson "has their number". Was s/he a "nark" that told the truth about CAD, as that is what the above post infers. Otherwise, the post is misleading.

    3. If it is the person I belive it is then then they are fabulous and I can't speak highly enough of them. Professional with morals, brave and better than all of the SLT!

      Simpsons number should be up. For some reason Mary is protecting him.

  8. Agreed. Simpson is a smarter bully though. Comes across as nicey nice but if you dare challenge him he isolates you so you feel like an outcast!
