Pregnant pause

The new Chief Executive of Bridgend County Borough Council is to go on maternity leave just three months after she starts in her new role.

Commenting on the news Dr Jo Farrar said "Bridgend council is a family-friendly employer with many policies that support a good work-life balance." The Council leader, Cheryl Green added "Jo has the full support of myself and cabinet and we congratulate her on her happy news. Tried and tested maternity procedures will be put in place to ensure the continuing day-to-day smooth running of the authority and the services we provide."

Bridgend's Labour MP has a different view however:

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon said: "It is sad news for the people of Bridgend, who desperately need her leadership at the council. It is particularly unfortunate that she is starting off her new role in this way."

How very enlightened. How very New Labour!
