Breach of Taxpayer Confidentiality by HMRC

The Supreme Court in London held this week that HMRC broke their statutory and common law duty of confidentiality when spinning a tax story to the press. They had a duty under the Commissioners for Revenue & Customs Act 2005 s.18(1), which was subject to only limited exceptions in s.18(2), which had to be narrowly construed.
