There's a call for local authorities to be given extra money to enable them to give council tax breaks to householders facing financial pressures because of coronavirus.
Plaid Cymru says the Welsh Government should urgently fund councils to enable them to help ease the burden on council tax payers.
The measures would include bringing forward the annual two month payment break for those who pay installments, defer payment for those struggling and increase benefit for those who have to self-isolate or lose work because they have to stay at home.
The Welsh Government says it is already offering support and will offer more. It has announced not just an initial increase in funding of £30m for councils, but also a dedicated funding stream for helping councils cope with the impact of coronavirus.
But Plaid Cymru's local government spokesperson Delyth Jewell says authorities need the money upfront.
The local government minister Julie James issued a written statement yesterday saying that the Welsh Government and local authority leaders were working closely together and had set up 'clear and regular lines of communication.'
On funding, she said:
There's a further call for help for struggling council tax payers from Citizens Advice in Wales which says the Welsh Government should fund a three month council tax holiday for those who can't afford to make payments.
It also wants local authorities to suspend immediately all enforcement action for those in council tax arrears.
Citizens Advice says the Welsh Government should be prepared to cover the losses that councils will face as a result of doing that.
