Can councils cut pointless spending?

Average council tax bills could be slashed by £40 if town halls shaved ten per cent off low-priority budgets.

The claim was made the TaxPayers’ Alliance which has launched a Ten Per Cent challenge.

The lobby group wants to see a reduction in spending on glossy leaflets, pointless adverts and press officers among others.

Give your local authority a call to see if they have any plans to slash their budgets for the greater good of the humble council tax payer.
