Restore Council Tax Benefit in Haringey

24 Signatures Goal: 2,000

The under-signed consider that to impose payment of 20% of the Council Tax in Haringey on people who formerly had 100% covered by Council Tax Benefit is unfair and impractical. It will lead to much debt, bailiff action to break doors and seize personal property, and very possibly homelessness and child protection problems. As well as causing all these hardships, it will be very costly to enforce. We would rather see a small increase in Council Tax than see Council Tax Benefit cut like this. We understand that a mere 86p per week for those with Band D homes would make the cut un-necessary. We also believe, however, that central government should tax the rich and the big companies enough to restore government funding which local councils have lost, and that Haringey should unite with other local councils to campaign for that.
