Chief Executive Pay - decency and responsibility

We're waiting for james mclean to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea,

Please provide the annual salary allowed for by Kensington and Chelsea for their Chief Executive in each of the following years:

2013
2014
2015
2016
2017

I would like this information because I believe that this salary is significantly higher than the Prime Minister's. I believe that anyone who receives such a salary should be a leader and should be seen to act when events and emergencies take place within the borough. I also expect someone who is paid such a salary to take responsibility and be answerable to people within the borough and their representatives.

Yours faithfully,

james mclean
