Lib Dems propose GLA tax cut
The Lib Dems have proposed a 2.6% cut in the Council Tax paid to the Greater London Authority for 2010/11, saving the average Band D household 58p a week. Despite cutting overall spending, the Lib Dems would give £16.4 million more to the police – in line with Council Tax payers’ priorities. This would be done by cutting waste and borrowing. I’d like to see Labour and the Tories vote this budget through with the Lib Dems, but I’m not holding my breath! See for yourself by reading the London Assembly Lib Dems’ Alternative Budget.
