Liverpool City Council are debating proposals to introduce a voluntary tourist tax.

The cash raised would be used to fund cultural events and help generate jobs and training amongst other things.

The City Council says that the Scottish Government are already consulting on the idea, and that there are many precedents from other major cities around the world.

The Council says that if the proposals are accepted they would then take their case to the government.
