HC Deb 21 March 1991 vol 188 c173W
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.
