For immediate release
Responding to Humza Yousaf announcing a freeze on council tax, Conor Holohan, media campaign manager of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
“Scottish taxpayers will breathe a sigh of relief at this announcement.
“Council tax rises across the UK are compounding misery on households already grappling with the cost of living crisis.
“The Scottish government should ensure that this is delivered sustainably through spending control to protect taxpayers in the long term.”
