Freedom of Information Act Request – Council Tax Enforcement

Warwickshire County Council Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

I am writing to request information held by this council pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please provide information held by you in relation to admission to prison for Council Tax non-payment over the period starting on 1 January 2019 and ending on 1 September 2021, broken down by calendar year.

Please provide the following information:

1) Against how many people were committal proceedings with regard to unpaid council tax commenced?

2) How many people were committed to prison for non-payment of council tax?

3) What was the overall total number of days served in prison by all of the people committed to prison for non-payment of council tax owed to the local authority?

If anything is unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act you are required to advise and assist requesters.

It would be appreciated if all of the information could be provided in Excel format, rather than pdf, if available.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Tara Casey
Women’s Justice Caseworker
