Commenting on the ...
Commenting on the survey by the Economic and Social Research Council into the impact of council tax, Liberal Democrat shadow minister for communities and local government, Sarah Teather, said:

'This survey demonstrates what we have known for some time that council tax

is fundamentally unfair and hits the poorest hardest.

'The only fair tax system is one based on the ability to pay, that means a

local income tax.

'Labour and the Conservatives have no response to the problems raised by

this survey. Only the Liberal Democrats have a fair policy that is based on

income not on property values in 1991.'
