Durham refuse a rise in allowances

So Durham have said 'no'. Councillor Amanda Hopgood, leader of the Liberal Democrat group on the council, also welcomed the plans saying she would like to emphasise what Councillor Henig said in thanking the independent panel for considering a rise, which would have been the first in 10 years, but given the financial situation that both the country and council still face it would be inappropriate to take it. Let's get more Liberal Democrat Councillors in local government - it makes sense.
