Summary: HMRC’s application for third-party disclosure of a deceased woman’s medical records, which related to the cause of her death, was granted where the transfer of her property 17 days before her death at an alleged undervalue was an issue in the determination of inheritance tax. The public interest in the proper collection of taxes outweighed the deceased and her family’s right to privacy.
