Plaid Cymru says the Welsh Government has agreed to create an independent panel to set the salaries of local council chief executives. It follows pressure from the three opposition parties who threatened to defeat important legislation if no such step was taken.
Rhodri Glyn Thomas who had tabled an earlier amendment to the Local Democracy Bill welcomed what he said was a necessary 'u-turn' by the Welsh Government.
The Welsh Government has done the right thing in bringing forward this amendment. The fact that some senior officials have been able to award themselves eye-watering pay rises, while low paid council workers are denied a living wage was wrong, and the Welsh Government has done the right thing in tackling this issue.**
