Dear Mr Percival,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Acknowledgement

Thank you for your communication of 2nd November which has been passed to
HMRC's Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need
to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either
comply with HMRC's obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we
think it's an enquiry that we don't need to address under the terms of the
Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it
on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.

Yours sincerely

HMRC Freedom of Information Act Team

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Team,

You did not answer the question submitted.
In your reply, you stated;
"HM Revenue and Customs
were established by Act of Parliament in 2005 as a new depart-ment replacing the Inland Revenue and Customs and Excise.
Parliament has assigned HMRC responsibility for the collection and management of a number of taxes, duties, levies etc. See s5 of the Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Act 2005."

Since 23/03/2001 Her Majesty's Government have been legally deposed of any authority therefore the Acts mentioned have no force of law...therefore the answer provided is evidently fraudulently made.

I ask again, please can you provide evidence that HMRC has the authority to demand and collect taxes under article 61 of the Magna Carta 1215 which was invoked on 23/03/2001.

Yours sincerely,

Mr A R Percival
