Paymaster general, Dawn Primarolo, told the House of Commons that 8,371,251 returns were received out of 9,246,131 issued. Those that didn’t file will help contribute towards a possible £90m windfall for the Inland Revenue in the form of £100 fines.

Those that were hampered in reaching their local Revenue office because of the heavy snowfall could plead for exemption from the fine. The Inland Revenue said: ‘Where adverse weather conditions play a big factor, we will look to be sympathetic.’
