Allowances Paid by Party

Click on a party to see a breakdown of their allowances for 2008/2009.

Allowances are published by Medway Council shortly after the end of the Council's financial year on 31 March. If a councillor left the Council or changed party part-way through the financial year, we have used their party as at 31 March, or the date they left the Council, to calculate how much the councillors in each party received.
