Ian Johnston has told Gwent Police and Crime Panel that he wants to hold interviews for the force's new Chief Constable in September, a shortlist will be submitted to the panel in October, with the hope that a new appointment will be confirmed in November.
He said the costs associated with the legal advice he got over whether he could give Carmel Napier an ultimatum to leave have not been finally confirmed, but "will be reasonable."
He said her retirement was "in line with contractual agreements", and there was "no confidentiality agreement" signed.
