To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, with reference to the financial case included in the submission of 9 February 2017 by some Dorset local authorities for local government reorganisation, if he will estimate what notional amount of council tax it is assumed would be specified for 2019-20 for council tax payers in (a) Bournemouth, (b) Christchurch and (c) Poole.

No estimates have been made. The level of council tax is a matter for the local councils concerned. The government will continue to maintain council tax referendum thresholds at a modest level in order to help keep bills down for hardworking people.
