Previous Action

I wrote to my local MSP (Jenny Gilruth) asking for support, with statistics on how many councils currently offer payment over 12 months and the benefits of such an option for the people of Scotland. Ms Gilruth forwarded my letter to Derek Mackay MSP, cabinet secretary for Finance and the Constutution. Mr Mackay's position is that as most local authoritites interpret the regulation as allowing them to offer payments to be made over 12 months rather than 10, he has no plans to amend the relevent Regulations.

Mr Mackay did not suggest any way to help the large number of households who do not have the option to spread their council tax payments over 12 months due to the relevent councils interpreting the legislation as NOT allowing them to offer this option.
