Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

with the Business Rates holiday due to Coronavirus there could be a shortfall in Council's income.

What provisions has Government made please so that Council's income is not reduced?

Yours faithfully,

John H Hutchinson

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,

Thank you for your reply.

To be clear, are you saying that the Government is making no provision for the Business Rates holiday and that WMBC is taking no precautions to protect itself from this shortfall?

If that is the case, what will happen to essential services, please?

Yours sincerely,

John H Hutchinson

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council
