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.
