Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what the average amount of council tax is across the area of (a) the Shadow Dorset Unitary Authority and (b) the Christchurch, Poole and Bournemouth Shadow Authority for the purpose of his Department's approach to council tax harmonisation.
Answered by Rishi Sunak - Chancellor of the Exchequer
I wrote on 17 October to the leaders of the shadow Dorset Council and the shadow Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Council setting out the approach to council tax harmonisation we are minded to adopt.
It will be for each of the councils to calculate any average council tax across its area needed for the purposes of any approach to council tax harmonisation that we adopt, in accordance with the secondary legislation that makes provision for that approach.
