Council meeting Tuesday night - will Lynne Hillan vote herself a massive pay rise?

There's a council meeting on Tuesday night (13 July) from 7pm at Hendon Town Hall, the Burroughs, NW4. The council unions have organised a lobby from 6pm, to protest against planned privatisation, and I think some campaigners for sheltered housing will be there as well.

Please get along if you can. Papers for the council meeting, which the public are free to observe, are available here.

An item that has been announced late - Item 5.3 - pertains to councillors' expenses, and could well involve council leader Lynne Hillan giving herself a big pay rise!

The figures involved are:
Council leader: current £34,909, proposed £54,227, increase 55%
Cabinet members: current £17,454.50, proposed £34,780, increase 99%
Thanks to Rog T and to the Barnet Bugle for spotting these in time for us to make a noise about them!
