At this weeks Full Council meeting, Conservative and Labour Councillors voted to freeze their Council allowances. Liberal Democracts opposed the measure.

Cllr Dale Heenan “I still believe that Councillors should not be allowed to vote on issues like their own allowances. Unfortunately this is the legislation imposed by Labour when they were in government. Swindon has an Independent Renumeration Committee made up on local residents and business. Both Conservative and Labour Councillors agree that any recommendation they make should be accepted. It is not for Councillors to decide.”
