South Paying North's Council Tax

Recommended Posts

Guest consa

MILLIONS in the South are subsidising northerners' council tax bills. Residents in southern England typically pay for half of their town hall's expenditure. Their counterparts in the North, however, fund only a quarter, a group of council leaders said.

Distortion of Government grants means the Treasury pays out £793 in subsidy per person in the South, against an all England average of £983, because of a distortion in Government grants, they added.

The leaders of 11 counties in the South-East say that unless Chancellor Gordon Brown makes up a £300m shortfall, massive cuts in services are likely.

Keith Mitchell, leader of Oxfordshire County Council, is spokesman for the South-East County Leaders.

He said: 'We are not asking for special treatment. The South East provides the Government with £18billion in taxes every year, for redistribution to other parts of the country.

london is thew financial/buisness/media centre of the uk, so of course more wealth is created there, and more thus distributed.What abouts scotlands oil taxes?, or the northern england gas fields ?.

This just sounds to me like another council making justifications for yet another higher than inflation council tax rise.

give us in the north the same wages as you get in oxford and we will pay the higher ct this ass is moaning about.

Looks like the oil/gas is running dry anyway so we can't rely on that any more, suppose we will have to support more northerners on the dole then <_<

Get as educated as us Southerners and it would be a pleasure :)
