35. Mr. Gill

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what discussions he has had with Shropshire county council regarding council tax. [85815]

Ms Armstrong

The Secretary of State received representations from Shropshire county council as part of the 1999–2000 local government finance settlement consultation process. Shropshire county council is also one of the 12 authorities with the largest increases in budget and council tax which we have called in to discuss their increases and put on warning for next year. I shall be meeting them on 24 June.
