To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the estimated revenue that will be received in 1991–92 from those who are required to pay 20 per cent. of their poll tax, in the United Kingdom.
[holding answer 24 February 1992]: The potential revenue in 1991–92 in Great Britain from those on maximum community charge benefit is £200 million and from students £34 million.
