LibDems local income tax would cost London families £1,446

The Conservatives have been doing some research into the LibDems’ policy of local income tax to replace the council tax. They calculate that a typical working family living in London would face an additional bill of £1,446 a year.

According to Conservative research, Liberal Democrat councils in London already charge £221 a year more on Band D council tax bills than Conservative councils, and £53 a year more than Labour councils.

I think we can assume that we will not be seeing the LibDems majoring on local income tax in their leaflets over the next few weeks!
