star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue &amp; Customs was formed by the merger of Inland Revenue and HM Customs &amp; Excise in 2005 and the VAT Inspector and Tax Inspector are no longer roles in the organisation. There are some 17,000 tax professionals in HM Revenue &amp; Customs carrying out a range of duties from tackling non-compliance with tax obligations to advising Ministers on changes in legislation.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst the overall numbers of tax professionals has largely been maintained from 2009/10 to the present day, and will be into 2014/15, the way in which those tax professionals have been deployed has changed to address priority areas of tax risk. This is reflected in the compliance yield, which almost doubled between 2005 and 2011 to £13.9 billion, and increased again to reach £20.7 billion in 2012/13 as key risks were addressed.</p><p> </p><p>HM Revenue &amp; Customs continues to recruit substantial numbers of graduates and suitable internal candidates to develop as senior tax professionals, around 600 in the period 2012/13 to 2014/15, to maintain numbers and enhance capability.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

The Government does not generally collect data on the number of applications participating lenders receive for mortgages supported by the Help to Buy: mortgage guarantee scheme. However, as a single submission to the Government, two of the largest lenders in the Scheme, Lloyds and RBS, have said they received 9,569 applications, and one of the smallest lenders in the Scheme, Aldermore, received 2,313 applications.</p><p> </p><p>Now the Scheme is open, the Government is collecting data on mortgages covered by the guarantee, and will report in due course.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>b) The Government publishes monthly statistics on the cumulative number of homes purchased (legal completions), with the support of Help to Buy: equity loans, by local authority in England.

star this property answer text <p>The Government's measure of total public infrastructure investment is public sector gross investment (PSGI). The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecast at the March 2014 Budget that this will be 3.0 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2014-15. Forecasts of government expenditure are generally made on a financial rather than a calendar year basis and are presently only available out to 2018-19.The figures to the end of the forecast period are as set out below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>2018-19</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Public sector gross investment as % of GDP</p></td><td><p>3.0</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td><td><p>2.9</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>PSGI measures the direct spending on infrastructure projects by the whole public sector, unlike other measures such as net investment which are adjusted to exclude certain elements of spending. Internationally comparable figures for PSGI are not readily available. The UK's fiscal framework is based around the entire public sector, many other countries only use a measure for general government that excludes public corporations so these are often the only comparative measures available. The OBR forecasts include some international comparisons of different investment measures. These can be found at the link below:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="http://budgetresponsibility.org.uk/economic-fiscal-outlook-march-2014/" target="_blank">http://budgetresponsibility.org.uk/economic-fiscal-outlook-march-2014/</a></p><p> </p><p>Neither PSGI nor the OBR figures include private investment in infrastructure which is an important element of overall infrastructure investment in the UK. The published infrastructure pipeline, which covers economic infrastructure only, provides an overview of planned public and private investment to 2020 and beyond, and can be found at the link below:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-infrastructure-plan-2013" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-infrastructure-plan-2013</a></p>
