This follows the recent announcement of a review of the two bodies, which will see them share office space in the Treasury building in Whitehall.

Spokesman Lord McIntosh of Haringey said in the Lords that the powers of Customs and Inland Revenue officials are also up for consideration.

Replying to questions about the review, he said the Treasury would consider the case for changes in the law ‘where necessary to allow the full benefits if particular arrangements to be realised’.
