The names of Kirklees councillors who owed thousands between them in unpaid council tax have finally been revealed.

Four of the five issued summonses to court for unpaid debts have now been named.

All are Labour Party members.

The recently-sacked deputy leader of the council, Clr Jean Calvert , has been named as a repeat offender, receiving court summonses on two occasions.

Clr Calvert has repeatedly denied being in trouble and claimed to the Examiner last week that she had only had a reminder letter.

Documents released by Kirklees Council show she was sent summonses for £843.79 and £96 in the past two years, on top of her well-publicised brush with the law for unpaid council tax in 2013.

Her Ashbrow ward colleague, Clr Amanda Pinnock, was sent a summons for £172 and £977.77.

Clr Pinnock, who is a solicitor, denied she had been issued a summons when questioned by the Examiner several weeks ago, following a tip off.

A third Labour councillor, Mohammed Sarwar, owed £1,186.16 to the council in 2014/15 and was sent a court summons.

Clr Sarwar said in a statement: "I received a summons in 2014 which I paid immediately and which was withdrawn after one day.

"The summons was for council tax on a property I had been renting out. The previous tenants had complete responsibility themselves on all affairs regarding bills. As the property was empty during refurbishment, the law on council tax had changed and as a result this situation occurred.

"I know that this was unacceptable. I made an honest mistake, but I should have known better, and all I can say in my defence is that I paid what I owed as soon as I was made aware of the situation."

The fourth councillor named is Amanda Stubley, who owed £763.53 in unpaid tax.

The fifth “ratesgate” councillor remains a mystery.

Kirklees Council has said the culprit, “Cllr E” on its list, who owed £870.34 when a court summons was issued, is no longer a serving councillor.

They say it is not in the public interest to reveal their identity.

A sixth councillor issued a summons, Tory Clr Donna Bellamy, came forward last week.

All the councillors have now paid their outstanding bills.

The names of other councillors who received warning letters that they were in arrears are also now public.

They are; Eric Firth, Paul Kane and Phil Scott.

Councillors Karen Allison and David Ridgway came forward previously.

Ex-Tory councillor Tony Brice has also been named.

Two others who received reminder letters have not been named by Kirklees.

Kirklees Labour Party group leader, Clr Shabir Pandor, said: “Council Tax helps pay for vital services to everyone in Kirklees.

“It is important that it is paid on time, and I thank those who do. The council needs to treat all taxpayers fairly.

“My understanding is that the Labour councillors have had actions taken against them and they are now all up to date and have been asked to pay by Direct Debit.

“The council issued some 85,000 reminders in 2015/16 and 26,000 court summons to some of the 184,000 taxpayers.“

Kirklees Council said it would not be taking any further action against the councillors.

A council spokesperson said: “We treat councillors the same as members of the public, it would be up to the individual political parties if they wanted to take further action.”
