Dundee LibDem Convener supports "Who pays Max Tax" competition

August 5, 2006 8:00 AM

Dundee Liberal Democrat local party Convener Raymond Lawrie has today (Saturday 5th August) lent his support to a LibDem competition to find the person who pays the highest proportion of their income in council tax. The competition highlights the party's campaign -'Axe the Tax' - to replace council tax with a fairer alternative based on people's ability to pay.

"Council Tax is by far the most unfair and unpopular tax," said Raymond. "The competition is a light-hearted way to draw attention to a really serious problem. People on low and fixed incomes that are hit the hardest and there are better and fairer ways to help fund local government."
