Do the Tories now Support a Local Income Tax?

Tory Assembly fiance spokesman in the Assembly, David Melding is quoted today in the Western Mail:

"there are serious questions about whether it is right to have such a high property tax that bears no relation to income."

As the party that first proposed abolishing council tax and introducing a progressive system based on ability to pay in the 1970s - we are delighted to seemingly have another one of the London parties on board.
