Councillor salaries

Last night's Evening Telegraph covered the issue of councillor salaries and the fact that Dundee's Liberal Democrat councillors have taken a voluntary cut in salary since April 2009.

In rejecting also taking a cut in his own salary (as some Aberdeen councillors recently announced), Dundee's SNP council leader Ken Guild said, "Aberdeen is in a financial mess - a legacy of the Labour/LibDem administration."

There has never been a Labour/LibDem administration in Aberdeen.

Dundee's Liberal Democrat councillors will continue to take the voluntary reduction in salary to pre-2009 levels throughout the 2011/12 year.
