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.
