Councillors in Oxfordshire have had almost £1m paid into their pension pots, a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
Oxford Mail report:
TAXPAYERS have given almost £1m to Oxfordshire councillors’ pensions as part of an “unjustified” scheme that will be outlawed.
Some £960,814 in contributions have been made to the “gold plated” Local Government Pension Scheme by Oxfordshire councils.
The scheme – of which about one in four eligible district, county and city councillors are members – will close from next April.
