Who charged Wirral Council £726.20 for 1 day of work on a panel about councillors’ allowances?
As you can see from the invoice above Don Latham Management Consultancy charged Wirral Council a total of £726.20 for 1 day of work facilitating the “Members Allowances Panel” (members means councillors) on the 7th June 2016.
The invoice also shows that Don Latham Management Consultancy charged Wirral Council £89 for bed and breakfast (although it isn’t mentioned where he stayed), £187.20 in mileage (416 miles times 45 pence) in addition to his hourly rate of £450 a day.
As a result of the Members Allowance Panel meeting on the 7th June 2016, the Members Allowance Panel produced a three page report (Joe Blott’s name is incorrectly spelt in the report as Joe Blot), with a three page appendix.
The only recommendation for change in the report, was that the amount that councillors could claim for using their own car be increased from 40 pence a mile to 45 pence a mile. This was proposed by Cllr Phil Davies, seconded by Cllr George Davies and agreed by the fifty-eight councillors present at a meeting of Wirral Council’s councillors on the 11th July 2016.
