Shropshire Star: Leader: Councillors pensions and the public purse



The figures from the Taxpayers’ Alliance for the amounts being paid out of the public purse towards councillors’ pensions are striking for two reasons.

We dare say that many people will not realise that elected councillors can get pensions. And then there are the figures themselves.

In the Shropshire Council patch, every person is forking out £74 annually towards council staff and member pensions. In Telford area, the figure is over £67.
