The National Assembly for Wales is this month consulting PROs over
the creation of a code of conduct. Currently, local government PROs
working in Wales are subject to the 1988 code, which the Department of
the Environment, Transport, and the Regions has updated for PROs working
in England. For the first time, Wales is to gain a separate code. All
CEOs of principal councils, as well as affiliated groups such as the
Welsh Local Government Association have now been consulted. The Assembly
has set a 25 June deadline for views.
