The Chancellor writes

A message from Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer, particularly to those who have local elections this Thursday:

 
"As Chancellor I believe in taking a balanced approach, and across the country that’s what Conservative councillors do. Delivering high quality public services while managing your money wisely.
Together, as a country, we’ve had to make some tough decisions to sort out the mess left by Labour.
Because of our balanced approach, Britain’s economy has grown for eight years in a row.
That’s why the Government has been able to cut your income tax, help keep mortgage rates low and boost your pension.
Locally, Conservative councillors are taking the same approach. Backing local people and businesses with high quality services, helping to create stronger local economies.
All of this, while charging on average £100 less in council tax than Labour for a typical band D home. So your family’s finances get a bit more help.
Yours sincerely,
Philip Hammond
Chancellor of the Exchequer"
