20/02/2012 in Tax
The Government wants to see all councils agree to freeze their council tax. Writing exclusively for PoliticsHome Chloe Smith, the Economic Secretary to the Treasury, said the Conservatives had "delivered" on their election pledge to freeze the tax, which doubled under Labour. She added that there was a "strong moral case" for the tax freeze as well, and urged those councils which have currently not frozen council tax to do so.
David Cameron believed Chloe Smith was a former accountant when he made her the youngest minister in government, according to the Daily Mail. The 29-year-old Chief Secretary to the Treasury was in fact a management consultant at Deloitte.
