The Conservative Party take back control of Basildon Council and in their first act vote to give themselves one of the biggest pay rises in Basildon history. With the creation of 6 new committees they have managed to give themselves a pay rise that comes in at just over £70,000 and rejected LABOURS calls to put a cap on councillor pay.

We at Basildon Labour feel that The Conservative Party should be truly ashamed of themselves for taking money away from the taxpayer, money that could be used to fund vital services.
