Council Tax Frozen Again

Labour in Lambeth freeze council tax for the next two years.

Labour in Lambeth will commit to freeze your local council tax for the next two years running at the Cabinet meeting on 12th November. With living costs rising and the price hikes recently announced by the energy companies, the Labour group of Councillors want to support residents. Labour has frozen your council tax levels since 2008 – which would mean a 6 year freeze.

Labour Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, Councillor Paul McGlone said,
“The economic failure of the Coalition Government means the cost of living is increasing and many local people are now struggling to make ends meet.
We are doing what we can to help residents and the council tax freeze is part of that. It is a historic decision that means council tax will have been at the same level for 6 years running.”
