§ Mr. Nigel Jones
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will publish a table showing for each county court, and in total, the costs incurred by his Department since 1990 in actions taken recovering community charge arrears.
Mr. John M. Taylor
The enforcement of community charge is dealt with by the magistrates courts. The estimated cost of community charge enforcement in magistrates courts from 1 April 1990 to 30 June 1992 was £8.2 million. It is not possible to break this figure down between individual magistrates courts.
