It has been reported that Labour Liverpool Council is to increase Council Tax by 2%.
This is at a time when £114m of Council Tax has not been collected by successive Lib Dem and Labour councils in Liverpool. This adds a huge £528 on to hardworking people's bills.
Last year, Labour in Liverpool said 'no' to £1.6m offered by the Conservative-led government to pay towards a Council Tax freeze. This has outraged taxpayers in the city.
The Conservatives in Liverpool are campaigning fully for a Council Tax freeze. Only a vote for the Conservatives will ensure a vocal opposition in the Council Chamber to Labour, something that the Lib Dems in Liverpool have not achieved.
