Group Attacks Plans for Council Tax Increase in York.


8:10am 5th February 2013

A campaign group is attacking plans for a council tax increase in York.


Andrew Allison is from the pressure group the Taxpayer's Alliance.

Yesterday the city council announced plans for a 2-percent or 38-pence a week increase in the tax in it's budget proposals.

Recently the authority has also been accused of wasting money on things like international travel for council leader James Alexander.

But he's hit back at his critics.


The budget is due to be debated by the city council at the end of the month.
