Can you provide me with a schedule (in Excel format preferably) clearly showing ALL the member allowances and SRA’s paid between 2013 and 2023 to all serving and previous members in each financial year (21013 to 2023) together with each member’s ‘Travelling and Subsistence claim’ total for each of the same financial years as above. The data should clearly show what member was paid which allowance for which role they held ie member, cabinet member, committee Chair etc. Can you also provide the data to summarise the total allowances paid to each member over the period 2013 to 2023 (annotating accordingly where members did not re-stand or were unelected during that same period)?
Can you also provide a tabulated summary of the basic member allowance and SRA’s showing the percentage increase year-on-year? Thank you.
Please do not provide links to Out-Turn reports or weblinks. Data in a tabular /XL form output will be much appreciated.
