LABOUR AND LIB DEM COUNCIL TAX RISES COMPARED

February 21, 2011 8:00 AM

During Labour's last seven budgets in Newcastle, inflation was 18% and Council Tax rose by 54%.

During the Liberal Democrats' first seven budgets in Newcastle, inflation has been 25% and Council Tax will have risen by 15%.

Newcastle used to have the 4th highest Council Tax in the country. It now has the 96th highest.

We're all happy to see Newcastle slide down that particular league table!
