Local Government and Elections (Wales) Act 2021

Section 143 - Reports of Panel relating to shadow councils and new principal councils

648.Section 143(2) requires the Independent Remuneration Panel for Wales to include its first determinations on pay and pensions for members of the shadow council in a report which must be published by a date set out in the direction given to the Panel by the Welsh Ministers under section 142(1).

649.The “first report” in respect of the shadow council may be an annual report or a supplementary report; this will enable the report to be published at a time which is appropriate in relation to the establishment of the shadow council, rather than be conditioned by the timetable required under section 147 of the 2011 Measure. Additionally, section 148(1A)(b) of the 2011 Measure is dis-applied if the first report is a supplementary report, so the period for representations on a draft report in this circumstance is not conditioned by the restrictions in section 148(1A)(b) and may be as long as is considered appropriate.

650.Subsection (5) sets out to whom the Panel must send a draft of a report (whether an annual or a supplementary report) which relates to a shadow council or the council for a new principal area.

651.Where the first report is a supplementary report, subsections (6) to (8) provide that the specified requirements which may be applied by an annual report under the 2011 Measure may be applied in this particular circumstance by the supplementary report.
