Sir Michael Spicer MP, chairman of the committee, confirmed today that he has written to Dawn Primarolo asking for the report which contains evidence regarding a merger.
Dame Valerie Strachan, chairman of the Customs Board of Commissioners, told the Treasury Committee at the end of November that the report could not be handed over because it was commissioned by a previous government.
She revealed its detailed conclusions, that a merger could not be ruled out but would entail short-term costs likely to outweigh efficiencies, yet maintained that evidence for the findings could not be handed to the committee.
Sir Michael indicated today that the committee was determined to see what was in the document.
‘It’s important because Customs has based much of their response to us on this report,’ he said.
