Even less value
THE Labour council in York proposes to increase council tax by a further two per cent, on top of the recent 2.9 per cent increase, even though Conservative chancellor George Osborne has set aside £450 million to help English councils to freeze council tax.
Is this further two per cent increase for the council’s slush fund, I wonder? The hard-working people of York are going to be made to pay this two per cent increase when they get even less value for their council tax as it is.
