Consultation description

The Chief Secretary to the Treasury (CST) made an announcement on 25 September 2012 concerning procurement by Government, which stated:

Taxpayers’ money should not be funding tax dodgers. So I have tasked HMRC and the Cabinet Office to come up with a workable solution to this problem and we will set out more details later this year.

The Government confirmed in the Autumn Statement that it intended to consult informally on how the Government procurement process would be used to deliver this.
