For the next two tears, but only in Scotland I'm afraid.

Of course, the fact that we have an election next May is just a coincidence!!

Well thats it then, more complaints from councils, police and other government offices about further cuts that they will need to make.

Then the larger banks will be complaining about the levy.

With the increase in vat, then everyone will suffer, and will need to tighten the hatches perhaps!.

Your link only applies to England, council tax is devolved.

We've already had a two (three?) year freeze.

Now we're losing prescription charges too!

"Now we're losing prescription charges too".

Not the people who will be entitled to free medication and items.

Those that are on long term medication, but are not eligible for free, should be able to purchase a 3/6/12 month reduced fee voucher.

Why Wales, Scotland, N.Ireland and England all have different methods and incentives, we will never be equal, especially as the NHS was intended!.

Well, no.

If you don't pay prescription charges you won't be losing them.

I thought that was pretty obvious but apparently not!
