Council Tax

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) of 23 October 2006, Official Report, column 1658W, on council tax rebates, whether such rebates referred to are only available to householders who purchase their gas or electricity from a Centrica-owned energy company. (99420)

The operation of any council rebate scheme for householders taking energy efficiency measures is entirely a matter for the local authority concerned. The Department for Communities and Local Government does not hold information about the basis on which individual schemes operate.
