Basic allowances

7.—(1) A scheme made under this Part must provide for the payment for each year to which the scheme relates of an allowance (“basic allowance”) to each member of the authority who is a councillor and the amount of such allowance must be the same for each such member.

(2) The amount of entitlement in respect of each member of an authority who is a councillor by way of basic allowance must not, subject to regulation 11 and paragraphs (1) to (3) of regulation 12, exceed the amount prescribed by the Panel for that authority in—

(a)other than where sub-paragraph (b) applies, the initial report in pursuance of regulation 34(1)(b)(i);

(b)a supplementary report, the relevant provisions of which for the time being apply.

(3) A scheme must provide that, where the term of office of a member begins or ends otherwise than at the beginning or end of a year, the entitlement of that member is to be to payment of such proportion of the basic allowance as the number of days during which the member’s term of office as a councillor subsists during that year bears to the number of days in that year.

(4) Where a scheme is amended as mentioned in paragraph (2) of regulation 6 and the term of office of a member who is a councillor does not subsist throughout the whole of a period mentioned in sub-paragraph (a) or (b) of that paragraph, the scheme must provide that the entitlement of any such member under this regulation is to payment of such proportion of the basic allowance applicable to each such period as represents the number of days the member’s term in office subsists in that period as a proportion of the number of days in the period.

(5) A scheme made under this Part must provide that no more than one basic allowance is payable to a member of an authority.

(6) A scheme must specify that where a member is suspended or partially suspended from that member’s responsibilities or duties as a member of the authority in accordance with Part III of the Local Government Act 2000 or regulations made under that Part, the part of basic allowance payable to that member in respect of the responsibilities or duties from which that member is suspended or partially suspended must be withheld by the authority.
