To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what information he has as to the policy of each Welsh district council with regard to the level of multiplier for the standard community charge in respect of second homes.

The information is not yet available. I intend shortly to collect information about the use made by charging authorities of their discretion to specify property classes and maximum multipliers for the standard charge. This will include information about second homes.
