Why Do Local Authority Rate Poundages Differ?

King D (1973) Why Do Local Authority Rate Poundages Differ?, Public Administration, 51 (2), pp. 165-173.

First paragraph: Every ratepayer knows that the rate poundage set by his local rating authority is really the rate of tax at which the. local rate is levied and that it therefore determines the amount of tax he must pay. But one wonders how many ratepayers know how great the differences are in the poundages set by different authorities. In the financial year of 1971-72, for instance, poundages in county boroughs ranged from 65p in Southport to 122p in Merthyr Tydfil, whilst in county districts they ranged from 50.5p in Norton RDC to 131.5p in Aberdare UDC.
