More than 600,000 people still have not paid the new Household Charge.

The latest figures from the Department of the Environment show that so far, more than 940,000 people have paid the controversial €100 tax.

The figures also show that fewer than 25,000 homeowners have paid the charge, since the March 31 deadline.

The news comes as the Campaign Against Household & Water Taxes holds its first national conference today, in Dublin.
