Lanarkshire Valuation Joint Board is refusing appeals in relation to wrong council tax banding based on an act that was implemented in 1993 and which states that appeals must be made prior to that date or within six months of a person moving into a property. Other valuation boards are not being so proscriptive. Will the minister write to the Lanarkshire board to request it to allow appeals that are outwith its rigid time limit?
