While people working in the public sector are tightening their belts and facing hard times top councillors at Wiltshire Council are getting a big pay rise.

Councillor Jane Scott, the Conservative leader of Wiltshire Council, today saw the Council approve a £14,892 pay rise for her. The 36.5% rise will make Councillor Scott one of the best paid leaders of a local council.

Councillor Jon Hubbard, leader of the Wiltshire Lib Dems argued that “it is outrageous that we have seen today the Conservative leadership at Wiltshire Council receive a massive pay rise just after they have made hundreds of staff redundant. 22% for cabinet members and an unbelievable 36.5% rise for the leader.

“Time after time today we saw backbench councillors try to stop the massive rises for the Top Tories, and time after time we saw the Tories vote to block these efforts.”
