To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to relieve householders whose property has been repossessed from the liability to pay either the community charge or the council tax on more than one property.

Since 1 April 1991 no standard community charge has been payable where the person subject to the charge is the mortgagor and the lender is in possession under the mortgage. We intend to continue this provision under the council tax.
