The Con-Dem Government Coalition is cutting by ten per cent the amount Bradford Council receives in council tax support, amounting to £4.3 million.
Instead of campaigning against this attack on the living standards of the people, Bradford Labour is planning to pass on the burden to those least able to pay: the unemployed, the disabled, and families on low incomes.
Labour intends to force these disadvantaged voters to pay up to 25 per cent of the Council Tax, amounting to an average of £195 per household.
