§ Mr. Hanson
I have discussed this and other issues relating to the Local Government Bill in a series of meetings with the Welsh Local Government Association over the last few months.
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
The level of remuneration of elected mayors will be for their own local authorities to determine. The National Assembly for Wales and the Welsh Local Government Association are in the process of setting up a review of special responsibility allowances, which will recommend appropriate levels of allowances for senior councillors, including elected mayors. It is intended that the result of the review will be published before the summer.
