But delve properly into the reason why the back Council tax had to be written-off and don't just follow the headlines.....and that is because arrears become statute barred after 6 years. And the Council Tax (Chargeable Dwellings) Order 1993 also applies which is why the tax becomes payable from Oct 2020.
I notice that the politicians making a noise about this have failed to mention statute law!! Cummings was 22 at the time of the 1993 Order and not even born when debts first became time barred. Strange that eh?
So not one rule for one etc in this particular instance!!
