Ken guarantees 'No council tax rise'

Ken Livingstone has issued a "firm guarantee" that there will be no increase to London Council Tax bills to fund the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Speaking to Vanessa Feltz on BBC Radio London earlier today the Mayor said:

"Last year we set the Olympics council tax precept at 38p for the average London Council Tax Payer.

It will remain at 38p next year and the year after and the year after that. When people see that it has not risen from 38p they will accept my firm guarantee – that Londoners will not be asked to pay any more to fund the 2012 Games."
