Law block threat in Senedd over council chiefs' pay

Opposition parties are threatening to block Welsh assembly legislation unless ministers accept rules to restrain council chief executives' salaries.

The Welsh government has already rejected calls for an independent panel to control the pay of top officials.

The minority Labour government could be defeated in the Senedd unless it reaches agreement with its opponents.

The Welsh government said it was considering how to decide pay levels in an "open and transparent way".

BBC Wales Welsh affairs editor Vaughan Roderick told Jamie Owen on Wales Today why the blocking threat was being made now.
