£200 Council Tax cut for every pensioner household in the North East
Nanette Milne, 03/03/2011
Nanette Milne, Conservative MSP for the North East has welcomed the Scottish Conservatives pledged to deliver a £200 Council Tax cut for every pensioner household in the North East.
Annabel Goldie, Leader of the Scottish Conservatives said:
“The Scottish Conservatives have delivered real help to millions but there is one group of people for whom I think extra help is justified. People who have worked hard, paid their taxes, raised children, given to society and for whom low interest rates are not a comfort, but a worrying constraint on their income. Who are they? - Our elderly.
“Scottish Conservatives will fight this election with a pledge to stand up for Scotland’s pensioners and to battle to deliver to them not just a freeze in their Council Tax, but a cut. Yes, a cut. A £200 cut - for every pensioner household. And not just for one year, but every year.”
Nanette Milne, Conservative MSP for the North East said:
“This policy will be welcome news to pensioners across the North East.
“Under our proposals every pensioner household in the North East would receive a £200 annual council tax cut on top of the council tax freeze which Scottish Conservatives have already delivered.”
