Nigel praises Lancashire County Council’s Tax Cut

Nigel Evans, Member of Parliament for the Ribble Valley and Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, has today praised the Conservative led Lancashire County Council for delivering a 2% cut in resident’s Council Tax.

 

Mr Evans said:

“I would like to congratulate Lancashire County Council on its cut of 2% in Council Tax for 2013/14. It is a decision that shows that the Council are in touch with residents’ needs and it is an incredibly welcome move.

“This 2% cut comes after the Council have frozen Council Tax in each of the last three years and as a direct consequence of this the average tax payer will have saved over £500. I am delighted that residents in the Ribble Valley and across Lancashire will benefit from this real cut in their household bills.”
