How much will county council pay-offs cost us?

You report that Northumberland County Council is taking leave of three of the executive officers.

Having regard to previous departures, I wonder if, this time, we will find out how much of our money they will be taking with them.

They will, no doubt, soon be ensconced in similar positions in another area playing the game of musical jobs so favoured by council executives all over the country.

I suppose that any remuneration given by Northumberland will be a state secret as usual, unless some brave whistle blower would like to blow the gaff, I mean, we’re all in it together aren’t we?
