To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether his Department has made an assessment of the proportion of the £150 rebate to people in category A to D council tax bands that will be lost by the average household as a result of April 2022's council tax increases; and whether he has made an assessment of alternative approaches to delivering that support.

The council tax rebate will be administered by local authorities as a £150 payment to families to help ease cost of living pressures. All households that are eligible for the rebate will receive the payment in full, including households in bands A-D who do not pay council tax due to receipt of Local Council Tax Support. The use of the council tax system enables support to be provided quickly to a large number of households.
