Taxmen are using anti-terror laws 15 times a day to snoop on those suspected of minor breaches of the rules, it was claimed yesterday.

Figures given to MPs yesterday show the number of cases in which taxmen have used the anti-terror powers has risen by 75 per cent in the past four years.

But critics accused the body of using the laws to investigate minor breaches of income tax, VAT or tax credit rules.
