Peter Aldous calls for local authority fair funding review to be carried out urgently

19th December 2017

Peter Aldous welcomes the business rates retention pilot for Suffolk but seeks assurance that the fair funding review will be carried out urgently as residents of counties such as Suffolk are facing significantly higher council tax burdens.


The business rates retention pilot for Suffolk is very welcome news, but residents in county areas such as Suffolk are facing significantly higher council tax burdens. Will the Secretary of State assure me that the fair funding review is going to be progressed with real urgency?

I can absolutely give my hon. Friend the assurance that we are looking seriously at the fair funding issues, which is why today’s launch of the consultation is an important step. Over the next 12 weeks, we will look at the cost drivers, which will have a direct input into the outcome of that review, making sure that all local authorities are funded on the basis of their actual needs.
