Opposition councillors at Wandsworth LBC are demanding an explanation of why the discretionary bonus paid to a former education director is so high, the Evening Standard reports (p14).

Donald Naismith, who took early retirement last month after six years in post, received a £130,000 'golden handshake', the paper said.

Confidential figures, leaked to the Standard, show he received a £97,937 pension contribution, a £21,314 discretionary payment sand £14,401 for the remaining notice on his contract.

Council leader Edward Lister said the award was based largely on nationally-negotiated superannuation rules covering Mr Naismith's 35-year career in local government.
