Andy Slaughter – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the HM Treasury

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andy Slaughter on 2016-02-29.

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what assessment he made prior to his announcement in the Autumn Statement 2015 of the effect on VAT receipts of changes to personal injury law and procedure; and if he will make a statement.

Mr David Gauke

It is too early to say what the impact will be since there is still work in progress. The Government will consult on the detail of the new reforms in due course. The consultation will be accompanied by an impact assessment.
