Support Oldham's elderly residents

We the undersigned petition the council to Stop charging elderly residents full council tax and support them with other bills they have to pay. I appreciate that the data suggests these pensioners are wealthy but once they have paid out all of their bills, they have little left and Labour Oldham continue to push council tax up resulting in elderly residents living on their own in a flat to pay £95 council tax. This is not fair as they cannot afford this. Even just giving them a discount of 50% would make a big difference.

On top of everything else, they will now have to pay the £154 TV Licence. Another expense that they cannot afford.

This ePetition runs from 20/06/2019 to 01/01/2020.
