As I explained in my answer of 22 October to the Hon Member's Question UIN 180627, it is now open to the shadow Dorset Council and the shadow Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, the membership of which includes the areas' elected representatives, to comment on the approach to council tax harmonisation which we are minded to adopt. Having regard to any comments we receive, we will decide the approach to council tax harmonisation to be adopted, and make any legislation necessary for its implementation which will be accompanied by such an Explanatory Memorandum as Parliamentary procedures require.
