Swindon Borough Council top pay

Some research by the BBC has revealed the remuneration of the highest paid across the public sector, those paid over £100,000. The figures for Swindon Borough Council are interesting not so much for the figures themselves, but for the apparent coyness of the council, in several places giving neither name nor post of the person in receipt of this largess.
