Cllr David Kendall restated his commitment at last night's Annual Council meeting to take a 5% cut in his Leader of the Opposition Special Responsibility Allowance (SRA) for the next financial year.

After being confirmed as Chair of Overview & Scrutiny, which also attracts an SRA, Cllr Barry Aspinell also confirmed that he will take a 5% cut.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Kendall said:

"I am disappointed that Cllr Aspinell and I are the only two members recieving an SRA who have agreed to take the cut.

"I believe it is important that we send a message out to our residents that we are prepared to take a reduction in our allowances during these difficult economic times".
