Matthew Sinclair, Director of The TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Councils should be scouring every inch of their expenditure to identify savings, so taxpayers will be staggered that so many council employees are still getting such a generous deal. Councils insist cuts can only mean pressure on frontline services but they clearly have money to spend when it comes to paying their own senior staff.

It is crucial that some of these senior council executives set an example and ensure they have the moral authority to lead spending cuts by taking a pay cut themselves. Households have seen their Council Tax bills double over the last decade and deserve better value. Proper transparency is an essential first step so that residents can decide for themselves if town hall bosses are delivering the results to justify pay at these sorts of levels.”

My comment: 13 staff paid over £100,000 last year by Cheshire West and Chester Council. £1,684,426 in total for just 13 staff, an average of £129,571 each. Who got the cream!
