TaxPayers' Alliance welcomes Osborne's council tax freeze

September 29, 2008 3:15 PM

The TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA) welcomed George Osborne's plans for
a council tax freeze, and invited the Shadow Chancellor to take up the
TPA's numerous proposals on how savings can be made.

       

        Matthew Elliott Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

       

       
 

       
"It's
great news for taxpayers that George Osborne has promised a council tax
freeze, and it's even better news that he has committed to making
serious savings in Whitehall. He's right to say that there are huge
savings that can be made by cutting out waste and putting a stop to
unnecessary spending. We have plenty of proposals of how to make those
savings, and we look forward to George Osborne carrying them out. He
may be surprised, but there are so many savings that can be made we're
confident he will be able to go further and afford tax cuts."
