Council Tax — Capping Order — 20 Jul 2005 at 16:22

The issue in this division was whether to approve a Statutory Instrument made by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. The Statutory Instrument, the Council Tax Limitation (England) (Maximum Amounts) Order 2005, had the effect of 'capping' the budgets of eight councils which had proposed what the ODPM considered excessive council tax rises for the 2005-06 financial year. The eight councils were Aylesbury Vale, Daventry, Hambleton, Huntingdonshire, Mid-Bedfordshire, North Dorset, Runnymede and South Cambridgeshire.
