HC Deb 19 February 1992 vol 204 c161W
Mr. Enright

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people have had legal proceedings arising from poll tax legislation commenced against them.

Mr. John Patten

This information is not available from magistrates courts records in the form sought. About 11 million summonses have been issued alleging non-payment of community charge during the period 1 April 1990 to 31 December 1991, but some will have involved the same persons in respect of separate financial years.
