Councillor Pensions

Mae'r cais hwn wedi cael ei dynnu'n ôl gan y sawl a'i wnaeth. Efallai y bydd esboniad yn yr ohebiaeth isod.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Do any of the Councillors receive any kind of pension from the city council?

If so, is this all the councillors or can you provide a list please?

Is the pension (if there is one) included in their annual allowance?

Yours faithfully,

Maria Hardwick

Westminster City Council

General Purposes committee recommended in 2003 (http://www3.westminster.gov.uk/csu/Gener...), and the council has subsequently decided, that councillors could not join the Local Government Pension Scheme. The Councillors Allowances scheme says so explicitly - this is the current version: http://www3.westminster.gov.uk/newcsu/Co...

So far as I know no element of the councillors' allowance is intended as a pension contribution.

Thank you for that information David. I can now close this FOI request, as I needn't trouble the FOI team with this.
