Local Authorities: Allowances

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will make it her policy to (a) collect information and (b) report on the average allowances paid per member by each (i) county council and (ii) borough council. (212068)

We have no plans to collect or report on allowances paid to local authority members, which are matters for each council to decide, having regard to the recommendations of their independent remuneration panel and on which the council is accountable to their local electorate.
