Dumfries and Galloway RC has decided to pay allowances totalling £200,000 to committee chairs and vice chairs, reports The Herald (p13).

The Scottish Liberal Democrat and Independent administration will pay chairs of service committees £7,613 a year and vice chairs £5,075 on top of the £5,500 basic allowances each councillor receives.

Labour and SNP members said the payments were 'over the top' and put forward an alternative package costing £70,000, The Herald reports.
