Council Tax

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much and what proportion of council tax and non-domestic rates not collected in 2007-08 was in each billing authority in England. (211388)

I have placed in the Library of the House a table giving details of the amount and the proportion of (a) council tax and (b) non-domestic rates in respect of 2007-08 that remained uncollected by each billing authority by 31 March 2008. The in year collection rates for council tax in 2007-08 rose for the 8th successive year and are now at 97.1 per cent. Collection of council tax and non-domestic rates continues once the financial year to which they relate has ended.
