A Victory on Chief Executive's Pay

Back in November we launched our campaign to end the veil of secrecy of Chief Executive's pay. We made a series of Freedom of Information requests to councils asking exactly how much their Chief Executive was paid - and what their expenses were.

If you click on the link here you will see the summary of what we found.

Some councils gave us the full details and other gave us only salary ranges. Northamptonshire County Council was one of the councils that only gave us a salary range.

However, we are pleased to report that they have listened to our pleas for transparency and have published full details on their website here.

We congratulate them on listening to us - it is now the turn of the other councils to follow their lead. If they don't then you can rest assured we will be making some noise about it.
