Is Warrington one of the 142?

From the BBC


Government figures indicate that 142 councils in England have so far promised to freeze bills this year.


"Money has been offered both last year and this year to local authorities promising to freeze council tax, although the government cannot force them to do so.


Significant rebellion


Last year's freeze was observed by all councils.


But BBC local government correspondent Mike Sergeant says this year there is a small but significant rebellion under way.


A number of Labour-controlled authorities, including Leicester, Nottingham, Darlington and Stoke-on-Trent, are planning increases of up to 3.5% from April."

Apparently only 15 local authorities have so far actually confirmed they are defying the governments suggestion and are increasing their council tax.


Maybe the other 211, (if the other figures are correct), are just waiting to see what backlash they get before they follow suit :wink:
