Wandsworth Council continues to pay top salaries while services are cut

by Sadiq Khan MP

I write about an issue that many angry local residents have raised with me, the amount of money spent by Wandsworth Council on paying some staff extortionate wages. sadiq

Wandsworth Council has 33 employees receiving remuneration of more than £100,000 – the third highest of local authorities all over the country with the top earner on more than £200,000.

By digging into this further I have also found out that Wandsworth Council now employs more staff on salaries of over £100,000 and £150,000 than they did back in 2009.

As pay at the top has increased, Wandsworth Council has slashed funding for our lollipop ladies and men, cut the much-valued Meals on Wheels service and pledged to close our One O Clock Clubs
