Labour: It's shocking that HMRC is employing more staff to take money from hard-working parents than it does to clamp down on offshore tax avoidance and evasion - Reeves

Labour press release

Rachel Reeves MP, Labour’s shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, commenting on revelations that HMRC is employing more staff to implement child benefit cuts than to tackle tax avoidance and evasion, said:

“This is yet more evidence of the chaotic way in which this complicated and unfair change is being implemented.

“It’s shocking that HMRC is employing more staff to take money from hard-working parents than it does to clamp down on offshore tax
avoidance and evasion. It’s now clear David Cameron and George Osborne did not think through this policy before they announced it.

“How can it be fair that single earner families on £50,000 will see their child benefit cut, while some couples earning as much as
£100,000 will be able to keep theirs and people on over £150,000 actually get a tax cut?

“With the government now set to borrow £212 billion more than planned and 8,000 millionaires getting an average tax cut of £107,000 next year, the reality is hard-working families are continuing to pay the price for the Tories’ economic failure.”
