To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 3 June 2009, Official Report, column 593W, on the Valuation Office: local government, which local authorities have sent data from building control departments to the Valuation Office Agency via the e-BAR/Valuebill facility in the last 12 months. (295838)

I have been asked to reply.

The sources of information vary from billing authority to billing authority. The Building Control Department will be a source for some billing authorities. The data that some billing authorities gather from their building control departments are not sent via the e-BAR/Valuebill facility although information derived from it may inform the billing authority and may result in an electronic billing authority report.
