'TOUGH CONTEST' FOR SECRETARY OF WELSH ASSOCIATION EXPECTED

The new local government association of Wales will meet for the first time next week with hardly a single question answered about how it will be run, writes The Western Mail (p8).

The paper says that councils have expressed concern that so little has been decided. Although the body has 100% support from Welsh unitaries it still lacks a name, money, standing orders, and a secretary.

The organisation's deputy leader, Graham Court, leader of Caerphilly CBC, says is hoped to appoint a secretary after next Friday's inaugural meeting.

The Mail says that a 'tough contest' is expected for the post.

Although the top two officials of the Assembly of Welsh Counties are retiring, Geraint Price-Thomas, secretary of the Council of Welsh Districts, can expect competition from jobless chief executives. Only 11 of the 45 old council chief executives will be in work on 1 April.
