HC Deb 11 June 1991 vol 192 cc478-9W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will update his answer to the hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. Clay),Official Report, 27 June 1990, column 259, to 1991–92 showing, in addition, the total gainers and losers and a more detailed breakdown of net household income, equivalised and unequivalised, at the top end of the income range.

Mr. Key

Information placed in the Library on 15 February and 27 June 1990 showed the distributional impact of the community charge on a basis directly comparable with domestic rates. Subsequent changes in local government spending and the level of central support mean that an equivalent basis of comparison is not available for 1991–92. Because of the small sample size, a more detailed breakdown of net household income is not possible.
