Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, pursuant to the Answer of 16 July to Question 162973 on council tax: Dorset, whether representations have been received in response to the consultation; and on what date the Government plans to announce its decision.
Answered by Rishi Sunak - Chancellor of the Exchequer
The Secretary of State is currently considering the local preferences on council tax harmonisation that have been received from shadow authorities responsible for setting council taxes in 2019-20, including those views from the Shadow Dorset Council and the Shadow Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council. He intends, as soon as practicable, to reach a preliminary view on the approach to be adopted, and on which he will invite any further comments from the shadow authorities before taking a final decision and making any new secondary legislation.
