Labour's call for the effective abolition of capping of council tax has won the backing of town hall finance professionals, writes the Financial Times (p12).

The paper reports that shadow environment spokesman Frank Dobson, speaking at the annual conference of the Institute of Revenue Rating and Valuation, sought to exploit Conservative divisions on the issue by proclaiming professional backing for his plan to scrap the capping regime while retaining reserve powers to punish councils which vastly overspend.

He said the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy and the IRRV had given their broad support to Labour's package of town hall finance reforms.
