The response states: “Around £17 million has been received in total since the start of the 2016-17 tax year. HMRC currently receives around £5 million each year.” more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where such investigations are conducted, HM Treasury take steps to ensure their independence which is crucial to the integrity of their conclusions. For example, in the recent case of the events surrounding the failure of London Capital &amp; Finance plc (LCF), and following a request from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Economic Secretary to the Treasury required that an independent investigation be carried out under powers in section 77 of the Financial Services Act 2012.</p><p> </p><p>The Economic Secretary approved the appointment of Dame Elizabeth Gloster, an experienced QC and Judge at the High Court and Court of Appeal, to lead it. Prior to this approval, potential conflicts of interest were investigated and HM Treasury is satisfied that Dame Elizabeth is independent from the FCA, HM Treasury and the companies and individuals associated with LCF’s failure.</p><p> </p><p>Under the terms of the Economic Secretary’s Direction to the FCA, Dame Elizabeth has the discretion to appoint a team which is entirely independent of the FCA. A process is now underway to appoint an independent legal team to support Dame Elizabeth in her investigation. The FCA is also under a duty to facilitate the disclosure to Dame Elizabeth any information that she deems relevant to the scope of her investigation. Should Dame Elizabeth wish to raise any matters directly to HM Treasury, she can do so at any time, under the terms of the Direction, via an interim report.</p>

We continue to engage Canada to seek to achieve this at the earliest opportunity, and both sides are committed to a strong trading relationship moving forwards.</p><p> </p><p>If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the UK will implement a temporary tariff which aims to minimise costs to business and mitigate price impacts on consumers. However, this will be temporary, applying for up to 12 months. It is not the basis for a long-term preferential trading relationship - transition of CETA remains the best foundation for the UK’s future trading relationship with Canada.</p> more like this
