markg….yes the issue of local knowledge was argued at the time. Info held on Council Tax too. Were the LA’s right? Yes.

Years ago a load of claims were being paid at an address in Highgate North London. What was the problem the then DHSS wanted to know. We explained that was the address of Highgate cemetery. We were told we still had to pay HB and rather than get angry had a bit of fun. Well at least they will be all in for vists…..its a grave matter….listen out for any bells ringing etc. Still makes me laugh remembering.
