All three Labour councillors on Wokingham Borough council spoke against the Tories’ plan to reduce the income of low income families in receipt of Child Maintenance payments.
At an extra-0rdinary meeting of the council held on 24th January, the Tories voted to include 33% of Child Maintenance payments in the assessment of Council Tax Relief. Council Tax Relief is a discount given to low income families to help them afford Council Tax.
Below you can see Rachel Burgess and Andy Croy explaining their objections.
Cllr Carl Doran also spoke against the plan.
