Poynter Review due at 4:30pm

The initial findings of the review into how the taxman lost discs containing
25m individuals’ records will be revealed this afternoon at 4:30.

The Treasury confirmed the timing earlier today, as various reports suggested
both that the report would put ministers in the clear, but also that more senior
officials were aware of the data issues at the department than had previously
been thought.

The report will say what had happened to cause the mass data loss, prior to a
review next year that will look to bring about changes to make sure there is not
a reoccurrence.
