Sadiq Khan’s ‘stealth tax’: Londoners paying ‘mayoral precept’ are hit with a 71 per cent increase since Labour chief became mayor, with city families now paying an average of £471 for the levy

Londoners have been hit with a 71 per cent increase in Sadiq Khan‘s ‘stealth tax’ since the Labour chief became mayor.

People living in the capital are currently paying £471 towards the Mayoral General Precept, which is an additional charge added to council tax bills to ‘support the Mayor’s activities’, according to The Telegraph.

This figure has shot up from an average of £276 since Mr Khan became London Mayor in 2016.

He now reportedly plans to increase it even further by £37 (nine per cent), imposing yet more financial woes onto already cash-strapped families.

It comes just days before more than five million Londoners are set to vote in the upcoming London Mayoral elections on May 2, with Khan seeking a third four year term in office, which would make him the longest ever serving London Mayor.
