Abolition Of The Poll Tax In Wales

EDM number 435 in 1990-91, proposed by Paul Murphy on 07/02/1991.

That this House calls upon the Secretary of State for Wales to take the initiative in the current debate over the poll tax and abolish the tax in the Principality; notes that this would receive the overwhelming support of the Welsh people and would be seen as the proper beginning of a new era of decent local government finance, with regard for people's ability to pay; and condemns the half-hearted approach to genuine reform as shown by the latest package of poll tax rule changes, welcome though these small mercies may be.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
