To ask the Deputy Prime Minister pursuant to his Answer of 7 March 2003, Official Report, column 1263W, on council tax, if he will commission a report to assess the advantages and disadvantages of the different tax bands in Scotland, England and Wales, and whether a similar system might be of benefit in London.

Work will commence in due course on a council tax revaluation in April 2005 coming into effect in April 2007 and the banding structure will be decided nearer to the revaluation. Ahead of revaluation, we will listen to views of taxpayers and local authorities and commission any necessary research.
