HC Deb 27 July 1988 vol 138 c338W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had from pensioners concerning the poll tax register; and if he will take steps to ensure that the register will not display birth dates for public inspection.

Mr. Lang

[holding answer 25 April 1988]: My right hon. and learned Friend has received a number of representations from pensioners and others on this subject. Under section 20(2)(a) of the Abolition of Domestic Rates Etc. (Scotland) Act 1987, only the names, addresses and (in certain cases) the collective community charge multipliers contained in the community charges register are to be available for public inspection.
