§ Mr. Alton
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how much uniform business rate has been
£000 1990–91 1991–92 1992–93 1993–94 1994–95 Receipts of non-domestic rates net of refunds 65,046 79,114 88,093 58,961 150,548 Share of distributable amount 95,702 117,961 117,736 100,968 93,650 1 Receipts of non-domestic rates collected from April 1994 to December 1994 only.
The figures for Liverpool's share of the distributable amount for the years 1990–91, 1991–92 and 1992–93—but not for subsequent years—include the amounts in respect of its preceptors, Merseyside police and Merseyside fire and civil defence authorities.
The distributable amount includes rates paid by occupiers of property on the Crown and central rating lists, whereas the receipt figures are based only on amounts received from ratepayers on the local list. The figures are therefore not comparable.
