Non-Payment: Council Tax

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 9 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people who have (a) appeared in court and (b) been imprisoned for failure to pay council tax were aged (i) 64 years and under and (ii) 65 years and over in each of the last five years for which figures are available. (290936)

Persons who have appeared in court and been imprisoned for offences under Section 56 of the Council Tax (Administration & Enforcement) Regulations 1992 cannot be separately identified on the Ministry of Justice Court proceedings database as these offences form part of a miscellaneous offence group which cannot be analysed centrally.
