December 7, 2017 . 6:52 am

Treasury minister Alf Cannan says the government spent more than £219,000 collecting rates for local authorities last year.

He faced a question for written reply in the House of Keys this week from Douglas MHK David Ashford.

Mr Cannan said last year the cost of collecting rates had risen from £207,910 to £219,241.

And he added once the cost of the government’s valuation office was taken into account, the total bill came to just over £398,000.
