The Scottish Labour
Party has promised to cut council tax bills for pensioners in
Scotland by a quarter if the party triumphs in the May elections.
minister Jack McConnell said the party planned to reduce charges for the
elderly by around £180 – which would result in savings for 600,000 pensioner
households, The Guardian reported.
McConnell said: ‘A quarter of the costs that pensioners pay in their council
tax bills is for water and sewerage charges.
‘Labour will cut them in half and eventually remove them completely. This
will make a massive difference to the household bills that our pensioners pay.’
