To ask the Deputy Prime Minister whether he will cap Torbay council in the year 2004–05. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
When the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister announced the council tax increases for 2004–05 on 25 March, we confirmed that we were ready to use our targeted capping powers if necessary and that we aimed to notify any authorities which might be in line for capping by the end of April. I cannot say in advance which authorities these may be.
