Tory opposition leaders says cut taxes not increase them

Chorley Council opposition leader Cllr Peter Goldsworthy has called on the Labour-run Chorley Council to cut taxes not increase them.

In an article in the Chorley Guardian today it is reported that Cllr Goldsworthy urges residents to take part in the Chorley Council survey.   Cllr Goldsworthy says that under the Conservative administration we planned to leave around £2 million in reserves for a rainy day."   He goes on to say that "the fact is that we have a lot of money in balances and from increases in funding from central government".

"What we should be doing is giving money back to the taxpayers with significant tax reductions."
