Responding to the news that the WLGA expects the average Council Tax increase across Wales for 2012-13 to be at a record low, at approximately 2.1%, Peter Black, Shadow Welsh Liberal Democrat Local Government Minister said:

"The pressure on family finances is growing and the last thing councils should do is make people pay more for the services they rely on.

"Careful financial planning and prudent spending by councils, especially Welsh Liberal Democrat-led councils, means that more money will be staying in Welsh people's pockets during these difficult times.

"Welsh Liberal Democrat-led councils are keeping council tax increases low, and have consistently kept them low over the past four years, to help people out in difficult financial times."
