No confidence vote adds to cloud of local government uncertainty

Commenting on a vote of no confidence passed against the chief executive of Pembrokeshire council, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Local Government, Janet Finch-Saunders AM, said:

“The position of this highly paid chief executive now appears untenable.

“This is a chaotic situation that only adds to the worrying cloud of uncertainty around local government.

“With a new minister, a maze of routes forward and a lack of leadership from Labour’s First Minister – communities across Wales will be justifiably worried about frontline services.

“I sincerely hope the right decisions are now made in Pembrokeshire to help communities put this fiasco behind them – and I urge Labour ministers to get a grip on Welsh local government.”
