HC Deb 21 May 1993 vol 225 c360W
Mr. Tipping

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much community charge was outstanding to local authorities on 31 March; and if he will give details of the amount outstanding to each local authority.

Mr. Robin Squire

[pursuant to his reply, 4 May 1993, c. 39]: I estimate that the level of community charge arrears for local authorities in England at 31 March 1993 was £2.4 billion. Authorities have, however, made provision for non-collection of £1.6 billion.
