Councils failed to collect £530m in council tax in 2009-10

Cash-strapped local authorities in England, Scotland and Wales failed to collect £530m in council tax in 2009-10, a BBC investigation has found.

Separate figures obtained by the BBC also show a backlog of about  

£2.5bn in unpaid council tax between 1993 and 2010.

But Baroness Margaret Eaton, chairman of the Local Government Association [Spin Factory] (LGA), which represents local authorities in England and Wales, says councils have an excellent record. 

My comment: See the amendment in blue above.
