HC Deb 05 April 1928 vol 215 c2143W

asked the Minister of Health what local authorities collect rates, other than compounded, by weekly or monthly instalments; and in which cases permission has been given to collect by means of stamps?


The collection of rates by instalments is within the discretion of local authorities and I have no information as to the number who do so. Assent has been given to the collection of rates by means of stamps by the authorities of the following boroughs and urban districts — Barrow-in-Furness, Bootle, Darlington, Grimsby; Folkestone, Pembroke, Port Talbot, Cleethorpes, Walton-le-Dale and Biddulph.
