To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what percentage of individuals have (a) registered for community charge in Scotland and (b) paid the charge.

It is estimated that over 99 per cent. of people liable for registration have been registered for the community charge. Information about the number of people who have paid the community charge is not held centrally, but we estimate that in most regions 85 per cent. to 95 per cent. of those liable have made some community charge payment with a figure of 98 per cent. in one region.
