Council tax payment allocation in accordance with R. v Miskin Lower Justices [1953]

We're waiting for S Staffordson to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Dartford Borough Council,

The Council makes the statement quoted below from the link:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

"The Council follows principles established by the courts regarding payment allocation. Where a payment exactly matches an instalment due the council tax system is set up to allocate the monies to that instalment. Where the payment does not match, it is allocated to the oldest outstanding debt first."

The council's statement above does not agree with the judgment in the case of R. v Miskin Lower Justices (see below link to the judgment):

http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...

The judgment clarifies the position in cases where a creditor has to make a decision as to which account payment should be allocated when a debtor has one account more burdensome for him than another and his payment is unspecified

Clearly the council's statement, if it were to agree with the judgment, would be.....

[[ Where the debtor does not make any reference as to where the payment should be allocated then the creditor must allocate the payment to the account which it is most beneficial to the debtor to reduce. ]]

Q. Where did the council obtain the information regarding the appropriation of payments case law which conflicts with the judgment in R. v Miskin Lower Justices [1953]?

Yours faithfully,

S Staffordson
