Council Tax Should be Frozen for Southampton Residents

Southampton City Council and now Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service have said that they will be freezing their share of the Council Tax bill in 2012/13.

The Hampshire Police Authority is due to set its budget next Tuesday and I am calling for it to freeze Council Tax too.

Southampton residents should not have to pay a penny more in Council Tax in the coming year and with everyone struggling with bills and the cost of living and with the government offering an extra grant to help freeze council tax, any increase is totally unjustifiable.

I will be voting for a freeze on Tuesday and I hope I will have the support of all the other Police Authority Members.
