I am grateful to my hon. Friend for his enthusiastic support for the community charge, which is certainly shared in Tonbridge and Mailing and Eastbourne. However, my hon. Friend is well aware that the structure of local government and the financial arrangements for local government in the Province are very different from the rest of Great Britain. My hon. Friend will be aware from my original answer regarding the community charge that we believe that it is right to monitor the progress in the Province.
