HC Deb 11 February 2004 vol 417 c1538 7.29 pm
Andrew Selous (South-West Bedfordshire) (Con)

I present a petition signed by 559 of my constituents who are concerned about the unfairness of council tax for people on low or fixed incomes.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of South West Bedfordshire

Declares that a major review of Council Tax is required for people who are on fixed incomes and pensions, and raises their concerns about reassessment of properties in 2005 which will bring further worries about impending increases in taxes.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to establish a major review of the Council Tax system, and to examine in particular the effect of Council Tax rates on those people who live on fixed incomes and pensions.

And the Petitioners remain. etc.

To lie upon the Table.
