Third tax freeze 'bad news for council services'
A MOVE to increase council tax charges by 1.9 per cent in the East Riding was defeated by a coalition of Conservative, Lib Dem and Independent councilors.
The authority's Labour group claimed an increase would offset the financial impact of welfare reforms on low-income households who faced benefit cuts and rent hikes.
Councillor Paul Hogan said: "We think the council should be doing more for our less well-off residents."
He said freezing council tax for a third year was bad news for residents who relied most on council services.
