Answered By: 
The Mayor

I anticipate that the precept will increase by around 30%, but we will have to wait until the outcome of the budget process before the actual figure is known. In developing my proposals over the last few months, I have taken into account what I believe to be the needs of Londoners. Obviously I am aware that my budget will increase the contribution that council tax payers have to contribute towards council tax benefit subsidy.
