Council boss asked to pay 'unlawful' money back

The Chief Executive of Pembrokeshire County Council will be asked to pay back thousands of pounds, after the Wales Audit Office ruled payment arrangements were unlawful.

An extraordinary meeting of the council today voted to write to Chief Executive Bryn Parry Jones, and a second senior official, asking them to repay a total of £45,606.

Bryn Parry Jones remains in his job at Pembrokeshire Council currently.

Pension contributions were paid directly to them so they could avoid tax.

Wales Audit Office also criticised Carmarthenshire County Council over pensions arrangements for its Chief Executive, when it published the findings of its investigation in January.
