'......before any reduction for council tax benefit and transitional relief, this represents an increase of 5.3% on 1994/95 levels.

'Shire areas are showing the lowest increases, with an average 4.5% rise on last year.

'In London the average council tax for Band C is £512, an increase of 7.8% on last year. Metropolitan areas have set Band C taxes at £605, 5.8% higher than in 1994/95.
