HC Deb 29 March 1993 vol 222 c58W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make it his policy to establish how many disabled people have been disqualified from receiving reductions in their council tax because their properties have been placed in hand A; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Robin Squire

The number of dwellings in band A which might qualify for a reduction could be determined only by asking residents of such properties to make applications. Such a request would be pointless, frustrating for the applicant and administratively costly.
