Dear Lambeth Borough Council,

I am requesting the following information under a Freedom of Information request:

For the financial years 2012/11 to date:

1) How many Members of Parliament (MP) and Members of the European Parliament (MEP) are registered for Council Tax. I would like to know the total number of accounts for each of the years requested.

2) a) How many accounts have been awarded the second home job related discount of 50% for each of the years requested, and
b) how many of these relate to Council Tax payers that are MPs and MEPs, and
c) the total value of the job related discount awarded to MPs/MEPs for the years requested

3) Do you have a separate policy in place for dealing with applications for the job related discounts for MPs and MEPS, if yes, I would like a copy of the policy.

Please note I am only requesting figures of the information requested and no personal data.

Yours faithfully,

Sal

We refer to paragraph 25 of the above guidance:

 

Any variation of the requester’s title or first name combined with their
