§ Lord Swinfen
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any authorities designated for community charge capping have so far accepted the cap they proposed.
§ Lord Hesketh
Camden notified my right honourable friend the Secretary of State for the Environment on 24th April that it accepted the cap. He has today confirmed the figure of £1770 million that he originally proposed. Camden must now set its new lower budget which will reduce the bills of Camden chargepayers by over £30, which I am sure they will welcome.
