Local Government (Politically Restricted Posts) (Wales) Regulations 2008 come into force

Implementation date: 29 February 2008

Local authorities in Wales are required by s.2(2) of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 to prepare and maintain a list of posts in respect of which the annual rate of remuneration is or exceeds £19,500 or such higher amount as may be specified in or determined under regulations made by the Welsh Ministers.

These Regulations, which apply to Wales, provide for that higher amount to be the amount that is from time to time fixed by the National Joint Council for Local Government Services as that applicable to spinal column point 49 on the salary scales for local government officers. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
