Local Government Act 1888

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

by:Theresa:Stirling UCC1-207

Dear Maidstone Borough 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,

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST

 

Thank you for your request for information about council tax.  Your
request was received on 22 March 2013 and I am dealing with it under the
terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  I intend to deal with your
request by 19 ^ April 2013.

 

[In some circumstances a fee may be payable and if that is the case, I
will let you know. A fees notice will be issued to you, and you will be
required to pay before we will proceed to deal with your request.]

 

Your request will be subject to any exemption which the Council is
entitled to apply to refuse your request.  Some of these are absolute
exemptions, and some only apply where the public interest in refusing to
supply the information outweighs that in disclosing the information.

Yours sincerely
