In 2000/01, Summons costs made up 0% (£0) of the total £50 charged to Council Tax payers in obtaining a Liability Order.

In 2006/07 the ratio of the costs changed with 100% of the total costs £65 being made up of the Summons costs (£65).

In 2011/12 the ratio of the costs remained unchanged with 100% of the total costs £74 being made up of the Summons costs (£74).

In 2012/13 the ratio of the costs changed with 0% of the total costs £82 being made up of the Summons costs (£0).

Q. Please supply, separately and in relation to each review of the summons and liability order costs charged to individual householders in respect of council tax covering the above period;

all information you hold to justify the changes, for example the reason for any change in composition of charges, and/or increases with calculations in support of the changes.

Included in this information would be cabinet documents or similar that would have been necessary to propose the changes and subsequently agree and implement them.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Bola
