Curbing excessive pay u-turn welcomed – Peter Black AM

2013 Mehefin 6 4:26 PM

Responding to the Welsh Labour Government's u-turn that it is to ensure that Local Government Chief Executive pay will be referred to an Independent Remuneration Panel, Peter Black, Welsh Liberal Democrat Shadow Minister for Local Government, commented:

"When all three opposition parties work together, we can force the Welsh Labour Government to improve legislation for the better of Wales. It would be quite churlish of one political party to claim 'victory' on this issue. The three opposition parties can work well together, and indeed with the government, and we hope this will continue. Curbing excessive pay was a priority for us and we are glad that the Welsh Labour Government has listened to us."
