Insolvency Service did not have the information requested.

Dear Insolvency Service,

Please can you provide statistics on the number of times the Official Receiver, acting as officeholder in personal and corporate appointments, has rejected the unsecured claims of HMRC in whole or in part in the last 5 years? Further, where such a rejection has taken place, how many of those decisions were appealed by HMRC and what were the outcomes?

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Hunt
