Question

Recent research by The Children's Society estimates that councils in London made 273,853 bailiff referrals for council tax debt in 2013/14 with London councils having the highest bailiff referral rates in the country.  Do you agree with their recommendation that councils should not refer vulnerable families to enforcement agents but instead prefer other methods to collect council tax debt?
