The Osborne Tax:

Salford Labour Council has managed to keep the council tax at zero increase for six years. Now more heartless Tory austerity is forcing a 3.75% increase.

Tory cronyism is taking from the poor to give to the rich!

This Government is giving Conservative councils most of the money from a £300 million Government fund set up to ease the blow of Government cuts to council budgets.

Wealthier local authorities like Surrey, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire are receiving extra funds but Salford Council is getting nothing.

grants awarded for 2016-18:

Surrey                         £24.10 million
Hampshire                  £18.69 million
Buckinghamshire        £9.22 million
Salford                       £0 = ZERO
