We reported on Wiltshire Council deferring council tax payments and business rates payments until June amidst the ongoing battle against coronavirus. Here is what you had to say about the story:

LOUISE MILLWARD: Defer? So people with no income just rack up debt? May as well not bother!

DAVID ARCHER: Shame on you Wiltshire Council for making people pay it at the moment, you should let people off the two months not stick it on the end

DILLIONS GRANDAD: Payments should not be deferred, they should be abolished. Deferring payments will only lead to people having financial problems later. Abolishing the payments would really help people. Businesses have been forced to close and most will have no income. All business rates should be abolished during a period of forced closure.

POODLEFAKER: There’s lots of government help around. Small businesses can get loans, self-employed, from July, get grants of 80% of lost income, plus they can defer their July tax payments, plus they can claim benefits and rent.

If their reserves are so low they can’t get through this short period they have to ask themselves if they really should be running a business at all.

I think the government have been very generous in the help they are giving all levels of society. But let’s be under no illusions, this money will be eventually extracted from all of us as future charges and taxes.

Last week, we reported on a huge row in Bradford on Avon between Kennet & Avon Canal boaters and people using the towpath for exercise during the coronavirus crisis. Here's what you had to say:

MARK GREGORY: This is crazy!

It should be possible to share the space in a sensible manor.

It is not difficult to keep distance away from boats moored near the path. In most places there is a wide grass bit between the water and the path. I do only go to areas near my home and do my best to keep away from places with narrow paths. Although it is not always easy, when boaters are using the path like their garden for kids to play, let dogs run loose, put washing out or work on their boat. Surely the same rule should apply to boat owners as well. Most on the canal are sensible but I got abuse from one owner near 3 Magpies even though I was a good distance from his boat.

I appreciate places like Bradford on Avon may have other issues with tourists but this does not apply everywhere. Canal and River Trust site does not give same msg but just says to "avoid any stretches with boats moored against the path". I even saw a guy in a Canal River Trust van today and he said that it is still ok to use the canal for exercise but keep distance as per gov advice.

BISHOPSCANNINGS: I live near a really rural stretch of the canal where parts of the tow path are well over 2m wide. But of course two boaters have moored up at the narrowest part of the path next to the swing bridge even though a couple of metres further up they would have been on the very wide section. This now means that anyone exercising cannot go up the path based on c&rt rules because they will be within two metres of the two boats. It also means that one of the boaters has to walk close past the other one to get anywhere even though they are different households. Why are boaters not being told to use their common sense as well particularly where they are on a stretch of canal that is a public footpath and not just accessible with the permission of the c&rt and they are in a remote village spot with wide stretches of path available.we all have to get through this together so both boaters and path users should be using their common sense.

A BOATER: As a boater who lives on the canal we have been told to only move our homes when we need facilities and to restrict use of the towpath. We are not concerned just for ourselves but also there are large numbers of public using the towpath which is a restricted space and people are brushing past each other!, it is not possible to achieve social distancing. So you decide if you should still be using it with the government's advice in mind.

LITTLE MUTLEY: If people just used common sense they could both walk and moor wherever they want. What people don't seem to realise is that items that people handle alot, such as gates, carry a huge infection risk. Unless there to keep livestock in there is no reason shut gates. The more people have to touch to open them the higher the risk of infection. So gates on canal path that are used frequently are probably a bigger infection risk than passing someone.

N1GEL: At the end of the day the most of the towpath is a public highway on which people are entitled to walk. The situation is similar to the many terraced houses that have a front door directly onto a pavement. There is no suggestion that people should not walk past such houses. People can stay in their houses with doors shut. Boaters can do the same surely if they are worried?
