§ Mr. Lewis
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his answer of 12 March,Official Report, columns 478–79, relating to standard poll tax payers; if he will now give the comparable figures for Bolton; and how many standard charges are attributed to second homes in (a) Wigan, (b) Salford, (c) Westminster and (d) Bolton.
§ Mr. Key
[holding answer 20 March 1991]: Bolton's return to my Department gives the number of properties subject to a standard community charge at 1 June 1990 to be "not available". In any case, no information can be provided in the terms sought. The fact that a property may give rise to the standard charge does not indicate whether it is kept as a second home or is empty for some other reason.
