Sunday Service Cancelled

Sunday ServiceHMRC have announced that, as from 29 November 2010, Sunday call centre staff will be redeployed to peak periods during the rest of the week (ie there will be no "Sunday Service").

HMRC state that this will improve service by "driving down waiting times and providing a more effective service for all."

Fair enough, if it works.

Please let me know if an improvement in service does actually occur.
