HC Deb 24 May 1989 vol 153 c585W
22. Mr. Paice

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what proportion of pensioner households he estimates will gain under the community charge.

Mr. Ridley

I estimate that nearly 70 per cent. of pensioner households will pay less with the community charge than they would with rates, and 83 per cent. of single pensioner households will pay less.
