Welsh Conservatives call for council tax freeze

Andrew RT Davies MS, the Welsh Conservative Senedd Leader, called for a freeze on council tax rises today during First Minister’s Questions.

Mr Davies said:

“As we begin to see glimmers of optimism, so the realisation of the economic, financial and cost of living crisis really comes into view, and up and down the land, people are now worried about future bills.

“It’s in Labour’s hands to use the £6 billion in funding they’ve received from the UK Government to support local authorities and finance a council tax freeze, keeping just a little bit more of our workers’ hard-earned money in their pockets.

“However, Labour’s ‘Professor Dolittle’ in the Bay has shown little appetite today to lower the cost of living in Wales and support families the length and breadth of the country.”
