A challenging time

Cllr Stephen Cowan, Leader of the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, said: “Families and citizens across our borough face an unprecedented cost-of-living crisis. Food bills are up already by about £30 a week, for each of our, many of our neighbours across the borough.

“We have the highest inflation now for 30 years, the worst cost-of-living squeeze in 60 years, and we see rocketing energy bills and government taxes that are about to hit households around Hammersmith & Fulham.

“It is without doubt a challenging time, and as you already know, many people are struggling to pay their bills and to make their household finances balance. So, I am pleased that Hammersmith & Fulham will freeze council tax.”
