The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an increase in the above rates during his budget speech. The new rate is applicable from the 6 April. Is it the intention of WDC to pay the new rate to those residents who are involved in residents groups or not. If not please explain why that will not happen?
I was of course aware of the Chancellor's announcement. I would expect that the new rate will be paid for those involved in residents group and to operate from 6 April. I do not believe there is any formal process required but understand it will be discussed at the Liaison Group on the 8 April.
