THE salary of North Herts District Council's chief executive John Campbell has NOT been disclosed in a pay package survey of local authorities.
But the district council says there is nothing to hide - it was just a question of replying too late to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Taxpayers Alliance.
The alliance approached every local authority in the country in a bid to reveal the pay package of chief executives.
A spokesman for North Herts said: "We do declare the earnings of our senior staff on our website in our annual statement of accounts," he said.
He added that the district council did reply too late to the survey from the alliance.
This reveals that there is one person in a senior position earning between £100,000 to £109,999-a-year.

South Cambridgeshire District Council refused to be part of the survey and is now the subject of an appeal to the Information Com-missioner.
The survey did reveal, however, that Caroline Tapster, chief executive of Herts County Council, received a pay package of £201,485.
In Cambridgeshire, the pay last year for former chief executive Ian Stewart was £195,000.
