Council tax should fall and not go up

RE: three per cent proposed tax increase from Scarborough Council.

It is not right that council tax payers pay £2 in every £10 for pension pots for town hall staff.

It is not right that the tax payer pays for full-time trade union officials.

The union members should fund it themselves.

Regarding Eric Pickles’ statement in the press, all councils have been allocated extra cash, so the council tax should be decreasing not increasing.
