Council sues itself for £700 over unpaid tax because summonses are automated

We're waiting for Bev Stanton to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Waveney District Council,

Please see the article below:

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/985230... (Council sues itself for £700 over unpaid tax)

The article admits that the process of producing summonses is automated, i.e.;

'He said: "For security reasons, summons documents are produced and packed by machine, resulting in the summons to the council being issued in error." '

How does Waveney District Council justify charging the defendant £60 in costs for issuing the summons?

Yours faithfully,

Bev Stanton
