There needs to be a critical review of the council tax if the current system is to survive, according to Preston BC leader David Borrow.

The council tax was '[not the] panacea many of us were led to believe,' said Mr Borrow. And it was not progressive, with people in lower bands paying a higher proportion of the tax.

'The income generated from each band needs to be skewed so people in the lowest bands are not paying the most,' he said.
