To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what recent representations he has received regarding the setting of lower council tax bands for residents of park homes. [104435]

Mr. Leslie

In the past 12 months, the Office of Deputy Prime Minister has received one letter from the British Holiday and Home Parks Association and a further nine letters from residents of park and mobile homes requesting a lower council tax band for such homes.

The Association also sent in a response to last summer's consultation exercise on the draft Local Government Bill. Hon. Members also expressed views during recent stages of the Local Government Bill.
