Breaking news: Panorama shelved

Special on carousel fraud not to go ahead after 'unexpected developments'

Sunday’s Panorama programme on carousel fraud is not now set to air.

The programme is not being shown ‘due to unexpected developments in a current
legal case,’ the BBC press office has said.

Spokespeople for the programme declined to elaborate further, but there is
speculation that the government’s announcement yesterday that it would change
the way VAT was charged would have forced heavy re-editing.

The programme was set to ask ‘why the Government is not doing more to plug
the loopholes in the tax system that allow the fraudsters to steal billions,’ as
the programme’s website had put it.

Yesterday’s announcement on applying a reverse charge on VAT has been
welcomed by many as a positive and helpful solution to many of the problems.
