Communications: Confidentiality and disclosure of information: introduction
We all have a duty to keep the information that individuals have given us confidential. When information is requested from us we must be sure the individual is entitled to that information. There have been past instances where the media have obtained personal information about individuals from HMRC. These have highlighted the need to make sure we do not give people information they are not entitled to.
The Litigation Team has overall responsibility for confidentiality issues.
