Labour hail council tax decision a victory for common sense

Commenting on the passing of the budget for Brighton and Hove City Council, Cllr Warren Morgan said:

"This is a victory for common sense and the right decision for the city. We have set a sensible, inflation-linked council tax increase, avoided a referendum costing £900,000 and a tax freeze costing £800,000. We have not passed the cost of Conservative government cuts on to those who cannot afford it, and most importantly we have kept control of our local services out of the hands of Eric Pickles.

I’m please we have been able to save funding for respite care breaks for disabled children, funding for community grants and Pride, and support for Able & Willing, the supported employer for people with learning disabilities. There is still £3 million in contingency funds in the Budget to support social care services."
