star this property answer text <p>The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a private sector project. The Government has never been responsible for ‘the full burden’ of the project referred to in the question. Until 5 June, Thames Water Utilities Ltd had full responsibility for the project.</p><p> </p><p>On 5 June, the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs tabled a Written Ministerial Statement informing the House that the Government had Specified the Thames Tideway Tunnel project, in accordance with the Water Industry (Specified Infrastructure Projects) (English Undertakers) Regulations 2013. He also issued a Preparatory Work Notice for Thames Water Utilities Ltd requiring or permitting it to do certain preparatory work in relation to the Tunnel project.</p><p>The full statement is available here:</p><p><a href="http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmhansrd/cm140605/wmstext/140605m0001.htm#14060532000008" target="_blank">http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmhansrd/cm140605/wmstext/140605m0001.htm#14060532000008</a></p><p> </p><p>The full notices issued on 5 June, together with the reasons for exercising these powers are available here:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/thames-tideway-tunnel-project-specification-and-preparatory-work-notices" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/thames-tideway-tunnel-project-specification-and-preparatory-work-notices</a></p><p> </p><p>Specifying the project means that, other than those works described in the Preparatory Work Notice, Thames Water Utilities Ltd is prevented from undertaking the infrastructure project and is instead required to put it out to tender, by running a competitive procurement for an infrastructure provider which will finance and deliver the Tunnel that is separate from Thames Water.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Government is confident that both the project and the infrastructure provider will be classified to the private sector, and will not impact the public balance sheet.</p>

star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue &amp; Customs (HMRC) will treat Accelerated Payments as a debt like any other, so HMRC will be able to use their normal considerations and flexibilities in cases of genuine hardship. HMRC will consider alternative payment arrangements as they do with any debt. The priority in cases of genuine hardship will be to get people onto a payment track so that the debt is paid as quickly as possible.</p><p> </p><p>It would be complex and costly to assess the ability of all those due an Accelerated Payment notice to pay the notice in advance of issuing it. It also risks creating a rigid approach that does not provide the flexibility to treat individual cases on their own terms.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC will equally be able to use their full range of debt collection powers as necessary to recover what is owed by the taxpayer, including insolvency powers in the most extreme cases.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>HMRC will always ensure that its action is proportionate and the particular action will always depend on the precise facts and circumstances of the particular taxpayer.</p>
