MG Rover staff exempt from council tax

Redundant MG Rover employees living in Bromsgrove are to have their council tax suspended for four months. The local district council has said that it wants to do all it can to help the 600 ex-Rover workers that live in the area. Staff living in Solihull are not eligible for the tax break although Solihull Council has stated that it would deal with situations on a case-by-case basis.
