HC Deb 30 April 1986 vol 96 c424W
20. Mr. Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the estimated cost of compiling a register for community charge purposes in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Rifkind

No precise estimate of the likely cost of compiling the proposed registers has been made. I am consulting the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities and other interested parties on operational issues involved in the setting up and maintenance of the registers, including the question of the costs likely to be incurred.
