To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what powers he has under sections 72, 74 and 80 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 to alter the valuation list bands for dwellings; and if he will use those powers to alter the council tax liability of residents of mobile homes.

My right hon. Friend has powers under section 74 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 to alter the valuation bands for dwellings by order. My right hon. Friend has, however, no plans to make such an order.
