HC Deb 21 January 1992 vol 202 cc105-6W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what measures exist to protect single women listed in the community charge register from being trageted by mail order firms, telephone canvassers and door-to-door salesmen; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Key

The extract of the community charges register which each charging authority must hold available for public inspection may show only property addresses and chargepayers' surnames and initial letters of any other names. It may not provide any indication of sex. Registration officers may not supply the extract to any other person except so far as it is necessary to permit inspection.
