Letter of correction from Mr. Dhanda:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) on 28 January 2008. The answer should have been:

Mr. Dhanda: Details of the council tax collected in each Government Office Region in England in each year since 1997-98 are shown in the table below. The figures are shown in £ millions and are the amount collected within the year, irrespective of the year to which the money relates. The figures include both arrears received for previous years and prepayment of council tax for subsequent years but exclude amounts funded by council tax benefit.
