Isitfair calls on Government to fulfill Council Tax promises made by Hesletine
On 21 March 1991 Michael Heseltine, who was at that time the Secretary of State for the Environment, opened a debate in the House of Commons on the proposed review of local government in
· “We believe that councils should be accountable for their actions and that there should be a direct and visible relationship between the costs of services and the local bills to which they give rise. We believe that those bills should be spread widely and fairly throughout communities; that they should bear some relation to people’s ability to pay; and that it should be possible to levy and collect them without difficulty.”
· “…there will be a single bill for each household comprising two essential elements, the number of adults living there and the value of the property.”
· “… the system should ensure that regional variations in property values do not lead to disproportionate bills in high price areas.”
