Council Tax support -reduced by Labour again

by gwynethdeakins on 22 January, 2017

At last week’s Council meeting, Labour turned down the Lib Dem proposal not to reduce Council Tax support for the poorest taxpayers, only allowing an exception for disabled people.  We’ve argued that the reduction in support for the others is needless – the Council is already saving £1m because fewer people overall are eligible for Council Tax support. 

Another example of Labour blaming the Government for a decision which is entirely their own responsibility to make.
