Welsh Office chief, Michael Scholar was force to admit yesterday tjat 'maladministration' had taken place under his predecessor, the Western Mail reports (p5).

Members of the select committee on the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration were angered yesterday on the reluctance of the Welsh Office to admit to the charge of maladministration on two of five caes.

Ombudsman, William Reid reported four findings against the Welsh Office in his last annual report. One repeated a 'blunder' critised the year before of changing housing grants without giving councils enough time to warn people with applications in the pipeline to get their paperwork in before the deadline. The Welsh Office made compensatory ex-gratia payments of £1,500 and £2,300.
