The Association of London Government says Londoners will pay 14 per cent more on their council tax to fund the Metropolitan Police in 1997/98.

Although the Met's budget has only been increased 3.4 per cent next year, the Government has refused to fully fund the increase, leaving Londoners to make up the shortfall.

This means that on a Band D council tax bills next year, Londoners will be charged an estimated£57 compared to£49.84 this year.

The ALG is seeking an urgent meeting with home secretary Michael Howard, to ask him to rethink how the Met's budget is set.
