Local Authorities and Parliamentary constituencies are determined by the region/country specified on the National Statistics Postcode Directory. Due to slight differences between the areas specified for local authorities and parliamentary constituencies on CSA's management information, overall totals may differ. The sum of the total arrears for Scotland by Parliamentary Constituency differs from the sum by local authority by 0.01%.</p><p>4.
