Concerns over jobs after HMRC says tax offices to close

All tax offices in Wales are to close, with staff expected to transfer to new centres in Cardiff and Liverpool.

HM Revenue and Customs is shutting more than 100 offices to be replaced by 13 new regional bases, with up to 3,800 employed in Cardiff.

Offices in Wrexham, Swansea, Porthmadog and the present Cardiff office at Llanishen will close. An office in Merthyr Tydfil is already due to shut in 2016.

The PCS union said the plans were "devastating" for HMRC and its staff.
