More than £9m of council tax was not collected in Suffolk last year a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
The East Anglian Daily Times report:
MORE THAN £9million in council tax was not collected last year, we can reveal today.
The startling figure represents a rise of nearly £3m in just five years across Suffolk.
But district and borough chiefs last night defended the unpaid bills, insisting fair and efficient collection methods ensured high rates of council tax payments.
