Council Tax will not rise in Brent this election year.
However, lets rewind to 2006. Prior to the local elections, the Brent Liberal Democrats promised to freeze Council Tax. This has not been the case. Band D Council Tax in Brent has for example risen by more than £100.
When it came to their first budget, they raised Council Tax by 4.9%. Since then, they have had two budgets, and have put Council Tax up on both occasions. In fact, during their three years of office since 2006, they have put the Council Tax up by more than the amount the previous Labour Administration did during its last three years.
This Lib Dem administration must be held accountable.
