To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will estimate the average domestic rates bill in each local authority in Scotland which would be necessary to yield the same revenue as his estimate of the yield of the community charge in 1990–91 and 1991–92.

In the absence of up-to-date information on the number of domestic rateable subjects it is not possible to answer this question precisely. The table below is based on provisional outturn information from local authorities on the yield of the community charge in 1990–91 and figures on the budgeted yield in 1991–92, adjusted for the amounts of community charge grant due to be received and for selective action, together with details of the number of domestic subjects at 1 April 1988.

Average rates yield per domestic subject to give same income as community charge in:
