The Welsh Government has confirmed that it's looking at ways of meeting opposition parties' demands on the pay of council chief executives in order to avoid defeat on forthcoming important legislation. A spokesperson said:
The Welsh Government recognises that the pay of local authority chief executives is an issue which needs to be determined in an open and transparent way and there needs to be effective mechanisms in place to ensure this happens. Listening to concerns over this matter, we are currently considering options for this at Stage 3 of the Local Government Democracy (Wales) Bill.
