It continued: 'Accountancy and tax bodies said the "get tough" regime should be delayed until a charter is in place to protect taxpayers. They also argued the charter should be a statute, similar to a bill of rights, rather than the currently proposed statement of good practice.'
Which is what Taxation has been saying for more than a month.
