Many taxpayers have similarly been asking what value Brian Coleman brings to London. Let’s look at the facts.
As a member of the GLA, Coleman receives a basic allowance of £50,582
Add to this his Special Responsibility Allowance as Chairman of the London Fire & Emergency Planning Authority (LFEPA) - £25,612.50
Add his basic Barnet Council allowance - £9,735
Add his Barnet Council cabinet allowance - £17,036
Grand Total: £102,965.50 a year
