Chris Chope asks the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government to clarify Council Tax impact on households:
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what estimate he has made of the number of households in England which paid more than 10 per cent of net household income in council tax in 2020-21.
The Government does not hold data on the income of households paying particular levels of council tax and has not made any such estimate. The level of council tax is determined by local authorities which are also responsible for designing and administering council tax reduction schemes to provide support for households with low incomes.
