Fat Cats avoid the cuts

Press ReleaseThis morning saw the release of a report by The Taxpayers Alliance highlighting the amounts paid to council executives across the country.

Our council here in Hillingdon were shown to have 19 executives paid over £100k per year, ranking number 17 on the list for the highest paying boroughs across the country.

 

Commenting on this, UKIP Hillingdon Chairman Cliff Dixon (Pictured) said –

“Once again, our council are exposed as using taxpayers money in an inappropriate way.

Large numbers of staff on council maintenance teams have been laid off over the last few years leading to crumbling roads, overgrown verges and rubbish problems that have made Hillingdon the rat capital of London.

Meanwhile, senior officers are enjoying levels of pay and generous pension arrangements paid for by the people of Hillingdon who are seeing cuts to services dressed up as ‘efficiency savings’.

How can Council Leader Ray Puddifoot justify such largesse whilst children’s centres are cut, the disabled are hit with withdrawal of council tax benefit and his administration continue to ship our money to projects such as the Lee Valley Park outside of our borough? “
