Council leader on council tax freeze

Birmingham City Council will not increase council tax this year despite it still needing to save a hundred million pounds of government cuts.

The council says it'll start charging to collect garden waste. People will have to pay £35 a year to have their garden rubbish collected.

The council says the cuts are too harsh and the government hasn't listened.
