Missing tax billions scandal

The UK government's policy of cutting thousands of jobs in HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) flies in the face of the latest research that shows the UK is losing £42 billion in unpaid taxes.

The publication of a hopefully unbiased Trade Union Congress report earlier this year demonstrates that these missing billions could be used to transform public services and take millions of children and pensioners out of poverty.

It simply doesn't make sense to cut staff when more not less staff are required to recover these billions in lost taxes.
