Local Government (Wales) Act 2015

Section 42 – Survey of councillors and unsuccessful candidates for election as councillors

82.This section amends section 1 of the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2011, a duty of principal local authorities to conduct a survey of councillors and unsuccessful candidates for election as councillors. It allows local authorities to arrange for the survey to be conducted by a third party, to permit the survey to be conducted entirely after an election or by asking candidates to answer questions before the election and collating the information afterwards. It also removes the requirement on local authorities to arrange for information to be provided anonymously.
