Labour will force a vote in the House of Commons to stop government plans to force councils to raise council tax by 5%.
Labour said the move would see council tax bills increase by nearly £100 on average for households.
It has accused the Government of ‘backtracking’ on promises to fully-fund local government for coronavirus costs, including lost income.
Steve Reed, Labour’s shadow communities and local government secretary, said: ‘The Conservatives’ council tax rise will hit families right at the very time millions are worried about the future of their jobs and how they will get through the next few months.
’With Britain having experienced the worst recession of any major economy this is simply the wrong time for this tax rise. This Government should not be making families pay the price for their mishandling of the COVID crisis and their broken promises to support councils.
’The Prime Minister must cancel this hike. If he refuses, Conservative MPs will have the opportunity to vote with Labour to protect family incomes and secure our economy.’
Labour leader Keir Starmer has previously called on the Government to increase funding for local authorities to prevent council tax hikes.
