North Ayrshire Council accepts that in principle all of its Elected Members should be treated equally in every respect, irrespective of political party.
North Ayrshire Council instructs the Chief Executive to prepare a Report on Special Responsibility Allowances having regard to the findings of Mackintosh, Kerley and McNish and with a view to ensuring that, with the exception of the holders of the posts outlined in paragraph two above, all Elected Members of the authority are treated equally.
