Responding to the Government’s flagship Levelling Up White Paper, Fairer Share’s Founder and Chairman, Andrew Dixon said:

“With the publication of the Levelling Up White Paper, Boris Johnson is promising jam tomorrow while refusing to lower bills today. If he was serious about levelling up, the Prime Minister would act now to bring in a tax policy that is pro-red wall and pro-working people. That means listening to many of his red wall MPs and backing a Proportional Property Tax. Doing so would make 76% of households better off to the tune of £435 a year, while sticking with the current system only means ever higher bills for already-stretched households. The reality is that the levelling up white paper is a dead duck and levelling up will never take off as long as the Government refuses to kill off our unjust and outdated council tax regime.”
