The Local Government Ombudsman has confirmed that the clothing allowance is being fully investigated.
The £12,860 allowance, paid to the Chair and Vice Chair, under Labour, has been paid for 30 years.
The Chair already recieves £13,300 for being a councillor, plus £6,650 for being Chair.
Is there really any need for an extra clothing allowance of £12,860?.. What do you think?...
