Local government – Council tax. The Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal, by way of case stated, against the magistrates' court's order that he meet a council tax liability of £975.26, together with an order for costs of £75. The justices had been correct to have found that the application for the liability order had been valid when the summons had included a request for costs, that the appellant had been liable on the evidence and that the costs reasonably incurred in the case had amounted to £75.
