Politics: Lib Dem Council Tax Freeze

In the last two years the Liberal Democrats in Government have cut the council tax bills of every household in Manchester that is paying Council Tax by 5%.

This year the Liberal Democrats in Government are offering the City Council the opportunity of a third year of Council Tax freeze but Labour, instead of accepting this Government money, propose to increase council tax by 3.7%.

The Liberal Democrats in Government have already made people paying council tax at the lowest band, Band A, £41.78 better off, and with a proposed historic 3rd year of Council Tax freeze would have made some of the poorest families in our city a further £ 37.30 better off this year.

The total council tax cut delivered by the Liberal Democrats in Government would be £ 79.17.  In a climate in which every little helps the Liberal Democrats are ensuring that hard working low paid families do not pay for the mistakes Labour made.
