£5k to be spent on reviewing councillors' pay - despite rises ruled out

COVENTRY council taxpayers will fork out £5,000 on consultants to help a review of councillors’ pay – even though pay rises have already been ruled out.

Councillors insist they will not be awarding themselves any pay rise or make any changes whatever the independent review recommends, at a time of cuts and staff pay freezes.

The whole review has been blasted as a waste of time and money.

My comment: I agree, what a stupid waste of taxpayer's money.
