If all local authorities used this to its maximum effect it could help raise nearly £2 billion a year by 2019-20. In 2016-17 144 out of 152 (95 per cent) adult social care authorities took up the precept raising £382 million extra for social care this year. The core spending power tables published alongside the Local Government Finance Settlement provide set out estimates of how much each council might raise in later years, and an explanatory note sets out the assumptions that these are based on.</p><p /> more like this
