Great New Year News From Leicestershire County Council

Northamptonshire loan repaid

Five million pounds loaned to Northamptonshire County Council has been repaid on time with interest.

The money was returned to Leicestershire County Council today in line with the agreed terms.

The County Council ploughs the return – £35,000 in this instance – back into services.

Many of us were concerned that after Northamptonshire, virtually declared themselves bankrupt, that the residents of Leicestershire wouldn’t get their money back.
