Baroness Crawley – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the HM Treasury

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Baroness Crawley on 2015-10-22.

To ask Her Majesty‚Äôs Government whether ministerial approval was given to HM Revenue and Customs to conduct a pilot programme of the tobacco industry’s Codentify trading and tracing system.

Lord O’Neill of Gatley

HM Revenue and Customs is not conducting a pilot programme of the Codentify tracking and tracing system.

HM Revenue and Customs is piloting Codentify as a tool for product authentication only.

As this is a trial only, no ministerial approval was required or has been sought.
