Council tax: 230,000 homes in Wales face first bill


About 230,000 households in Wales will pay at least some council tax for the first time if new regulations are approved by the Welsh assembly.

They may only have to pay a relatively small amount, but financial advice groups say it will add to pressure on their services.

The 330,000 households who currently get the benefit will be £67 worse off on average next year. #

The Welsh government says 70% of them have not paid council tax before.

Carl Roberts has the story.
