That this House is concerned at HM Revenue and Customs' (HMRC) plan with the misnomer Building Our Future which will reduce its offices from 170 to 17; notes that these proposals are driven by the Department's need to end the costly Mapeley PFI estates contract; believes that a centralised, remote HMRC losing the expertise of experienced staff and specialist local knowledge will have a detrimental impact on its service to the public and a devastating impact on local economies; further believes that this plan would seriously compromise the ability of HMRC to close the tax gap; and calls on the Government to ensure that Building our Future is suspended until a comprehensive consultation process, involving all staff and stakeholders including the PCS union, has concluded and any plans have been subjected to parliamentary scrutiny.
