Dear Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government,

This FOIA request has been forwarded to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government by the Ministry of Justice who peculiarly do not know what level of court is required because they say there is no legal or business requirement for the MOJ to do so.

Please confirm under FOIA who is authorised to collect Governent taxes excluding HMRC who do not collect or enforce local government tax.

What information you hold that confirms that Local Government council billing authorities are authorised by Central Government for council tax and business rates billing, collection and for the enforcement within the court system.

What level of court is authorised for the enforcement of government taxes by national council billing authorities, where a liability order has been made.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Frankham
