I lived in the borough – and the attacks on the council deserve a little balance, writes Janet Graham
By all means criticise Kensington and Chelsea for offering rebates and for keeping reserves of money back (Council finances: £274m in reserves, and £100 rebate for the richest, 20 June), but at least try to get the facts correct. I was living in the borough in April 2014, as I had done for the previous 31 years, in a flat, not a mansion, on council tax band F, and I got the rebate – as did all council tax payers who were not receiving council tax benefit or other exemption. I note that the council leader suggested that those who felt they did not need the rebate might like to donate it to the then mayor’s charity, the Trinity Hospice.
