Government rules out English council tax revaluation

The government has pledged that there will be no revaluation of council tax bands in England during this Parliament.

It means there will be no rise in local taxes for householders based solely on the increased value of their homes.

Every property in England is in one of eight council tax bands, depending on value, and these were last set in 1993.

Greg Wood reports.
