SALFORD MAYOR AND CABINET PAY REVIEW NEXT WEEK
When the new Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, was elected in May, he told the Council that he would be seeking to review his £69,000 allowances and those of his Cabinet, in which the Deputy Mayor, David Lancaster, pocketed almost £45,000 last year.
On August 12th an Independent Remuneration Panel is due to meet to set new allowances. Last time, this Panel recommended huge increases in pay.
