The question topics on Tuesday focused on the newly released proposal by the administration for how the poll tax would be replaced. Exactly how the communities would get their funds from the proposed “Council Tax” to provide services was discussed. The issue is expected to influence the many local elections on Thursday. Also on the agenda was two-tier local government structures, the recession and unemployment. By Thursday the members had had a chance to review the Council Tax proposal, so questions became more focused on the specifics of the plan. It was also announced that as part of the plan, local government autonomy will be reduced in the process. The opposition party countered with a “Fair Rates” proposal which would not have as much central oversight. Also discussed was the European Economic Community’s agriculture spending. close
