Liverpool Two Councillors court proceedings for none payment of council tax

Waiting for an internal review by Liverpool City Council of their handling of this request.

Dear Liverpool City Council
Please would you name the two councillors who are in council tax arrears. And taken to Court the full amount of monies owed ?
would you name the two councillors who have lost their voting rights because they are in council tax arrears.

Section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 makes it an offence for a councillor in council tax arrears (with at least two months unpaid bills) to vote at a meeting of the council, a committee or of the council’s executive where financial matters relating to council tax are being considered. It is also an offence if any such councillor present, who is aware of the arrears, fails to disclose that they are in arrears of council tax.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Traynor

Liverpool City Council

Why does this Labour council think it is above the law ?
