An Assembly Member has provoked a row by publicising the salaries of Wales’ housing association bosses.

Jan 23 2017

Wales Online

Neil McEvoy tweeted a list of salaries from an unpublished National Assembly report.

The Assembly report which contained the figures tweeted out by Mr McEvoy was headed “Restricted”.

Mr McEvoy wrote across it: “And people think politicians get all the money”.

Housing Association Salaries

Please read the document. Hidden in parts but the message is clear. Strange how this was missed by the media?

The salaries written above in 2015/16 were:

Michael Williams of Gwalia Housing Association – now part of Pobl – was the highest earner on 151,712.

Paul Davies of Trivallis – formerly RCT Homes – was paid 148,500;

Amanda Davies of Seren Group – now also part of Pobl – received 136,514;

Ceri Doyle, of Newport City Homes, got 134,640;

Anne Hinchey, of Wales and West, 133,000;

Anthony Whitaker, of United Welsh, 124,430;

Linda Whitaker, of NPT Homes, 123,624;

Duncan Forbes, of Bron Afon, 121,388;

Mark Gardner, of Malin Homes, 116,000.Shortly afterwards, Mr McEvoy took down the tweet and apologised.
