Treasury sets terms of reference for Poynter review

Treasury wants interim report and recommendations from PwC boss Kieran Poynter by 14 December

The way HM Revenue & Customs transfers confidential data and communicates
these procedures to staff will be the main focus of Kieran Poynter’s review into
data management at the taxman.

The Treasury announced the terms of reference of the Poynter review today.
The PricewaterhouseCoopers head will report back to the Treasury on 14 December.
He will also make recommendations on how to improve HMRC’s processes.
