In the Tories’ latest broadcast they claim to provide regular bin collections, more affordable homes and lower council tax.

Labour has released a video rebutting all the claims made by the Conservative Party in its recent party political broadcast, which aired on Monday.
As reported by LabourList in our preview of Labour’s austerity-focussed broadcast, the Tories chose to repeat their 2018 local election campaign with a “bins not Brexit” theme.
In doing so, they claimed in the broadcast that…
- Tory councils collect bins regularly.
But Labour says: Collections in Trafford, when under Tory control, went from weekly to fortnightly.
- Tory councils recycle more.
But Labour says: Funding for recycling in Dover has been cut in half.
- Tory councils are building homes.
But Labour says: Labour councils build 83% more affordable homes than Tory councils.
