Energy Bills Rebate

Question for Treasury

UIN 122628, tabled on 10 February 2022

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.
