To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much port businesses in the statutory ports owe in arrears of non-domestic rates; and what the cost to the public purse will be of his proposal to allow them to pay this over eight years without interest.

I have been asked to reply.

Local authorities are responsible for the billing and collection of business rates and the Department does not hold the information on individual arrears. The impact of the policy is set out in the Impact Assessment which was laid before this House on the 10 February accompanying The Non-Domestic Rating (Collection and Enforcement) (Local Lists) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2009 (SI 204).
