Public sector goes beyond local government itself. Will the Minister consider setting up a senior salaries board for bodies funded by the Welsh Government that could set recommended bands for senior salaries across the whole of the Welsh public sector?
One of the issues I think we have to look at as we create one Welsh public service is that there are different terms and conditions in different parts of the public services in Wales. We have established the Public Services Staff Commission, of course, on a non-statutory basis, and next week the draft Bill will set out our proposals for establishing the Public Services Staff Commission on a statutory basis. There are a number of issues that will arise I think that we will have to consider as we move forward on public service pay and public service rewards, and it’s important, I think, that those considerations are given the right framework. I think the Public Services Staff Commission does that.
