Council Tax

Volume 713: debated on Tuesday 27 October 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the most recent estimate of the costs of requiring councils to freeze council tax for two years and making up the difference in revenue to councils in a higher block grant. [HL5610]

Since each local authority determines the level of council tax at the time of setting its own budget, it is not possible to make an accurate estimate of the difference that would arise from a decision by LAs to freeze council tax.
