Dear South Lakeland District Council,

In the Local Government Act 1888 it specifically states the
following;

Section 79 Incorporation of county council.
(2)All duties and liabilities of the inhabitants of a county shall
become and be duties and liabilities of the council of such county.

Can you confirm that you operate under the Local Government Act
1888 as required by law.

Since you are therefore according to this statute liable for the
inhabitants liabilities, does this not mean that you are also
liable for the inhabitants council tax?. Not withstanding other
liabilities which inhabitants of said council may possess.

Would you kindly outline the format in which such liabilities and
duties may be presented to you for payment.

Yours faithfully,

by:Theresa:Stirling

FOI, South Lakeland District Council
