To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the oral contribution of the Financial Secretary to the Treasury of 19 December 2018, Official Report, column, 1039, what the timetable is for HMRC to reach an agreement with the Roadchef Employee Benefits Trust on outstanding tax liabilities.

The administration of the tax system, including where appropriate the repayment of tax or duties, is a matter for HM Revenue and Customs. It would not be appropriate for Treasury Ministers to become involved in the administration of the tax system in specific cases.
As I mentioned in the debate in December, HMRC is doing everything it can to resolve the issue promptly and fairly.
