Police confirm new pension cash investigation after whistleblower comes forward at Pembrokeshire County Council

A fresh police investigation has been launched.

Labour leader Cllr Paul Miller was approached by a whistleblower, prompting the new police probe.

YET another police investigation is set to rock Pembrokeshire County Hall, the Western Telegraph can exclusively reveal.

The Western Telegraph has learned that Gloucestershire Constabulary has been passed new information relating to the controversial pension ‘pay supplement’ paid to county council chief executive Bryn Parry-Jones and another, unnamed, senior officer.

And, on the basis of the new information received, a fresh police investigation has been launched.

Council Labour leader Cllr Paul Miller wrote to Gloucestershire Police on June 9 after being personally approached by an anonymous whistleblower.

The whistleblower provided Cllr Miller with information relating to the original report in 2011 which first suggested allowing senior, well-paid officers, to be allowed to opt out of the local government pension plan and receive the equivalent of the employer’s pension contribution as salary.

The issue eventually led to a Wales Audit Office public interest report declaring the arrangement ‘unlawful’, but an original investigation by Gloucestershire Police found no wrong doing.

More than £45,000 has been paid to Mr Parry-Jones and the other officer involved under the arrangement.

The report to the senior staff committee was said to have been written by the Director of Finance and Leisure and the Head of Human Resources and made the claim that introducing the policy would "aid recruitment and retention" of senior officers, although the Wales Audit Office questioned that assertion.

But Cllr Miller has been passed information which alleges that Mr Parry-Jones actually wrote the report himself.

Cllr Miller wrote to Gloucester Police and this week received a call to confirm that the information was being investigated.

A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesman told the Western Telegraph "Following receipt of new information relating to Pembrokeshire County Council and the Public Interest report published by the Wales Audit Office early this year, Dyfed-Powys Police and Gloucestershire Constabulary have now fully considered this and as a result have decided the new information specifically should be investigated further by the police.

"Due to the close working relationships and partnership arrangements that exist between Dyfed-Powys Police and Pembrokeshire County Council, it is not appropriate for the Force to carry out the enquiry, and as such the matter will be investigated by Gloucestershire Constabulary.

"The investigation will not re-visit the previous information available, and will be focussed on any new evidence that comes to light. It would not be appropriate to comment further on this ongoing investigation at this time."

The Western Telegraph asked Pembrokeshire County Council if Mr Parry-Jones would remain in post while the investigation took place.

But a spokesman would only say: “We are aware of the public statement issued by Dyfed-Powys Police and can confirm that we will co-operate fully with any requests from Gloucestershire Constabulary.”

Cllr Miller said: “Mr Parry-Jones has now got to be suspended while this investigation takes place. His position is untenable. He cannot remain in place while this investigation continues.”

Lets hope Gloucestershire Constabulary find Parry-Jones guilty and ends up in prison..I have yet to find a person in Pembrokeshire who likes Parry-Jones.. A man you could not trust..

I think Gloucestershire Constabulary should also investigate all the Councillors of Pembrokeshire C. C. It has been quite obvious a majority of the councillors have always backed Parry-Jones throughout the investigation...

will this be the same as so many times before when it looks as if BPJ has done something beyond the pail, but the small print in the letter of the law enables him to 'escape'? and that he also gets the support of most of the members of the council for acts that most normal people just think are basically wrong, whatever the small print says. What may be different this time is that one of his staff, who must have previously been loyal and aware of what was going on, may have finally had enough and is telling the tale. and well done again to Paul Miller - right over might.

Clearly the CEO of Pembrokeshire CC must be suspended during a police investigation. In fact I am surprised he has not been arrested and his office searched for further evidence. There may also be a case of collusion by an exclusive clique of Councillors who were aware that this report came from BPJ.

The people of Pembrokeshire deserve justice and compensation for nearly twenty years of sub standard management of their public services.

ex-Leader John Davies has been very contrite since the debacle surrounding BPJ's unlawful payments blew up. Abstaining from votes. Absent from meetings. Apologies for the way things were conducted.

The IPG and BPJ are hanging from a thread. As a previous poster has noted, much bigger fish have been caught and dispensed with, nothing is impossible and nobody is invincible.

Following the revelations from the whistleblower, my suspicion is that BPJ did indeed write the report himself and ex-Leader John Davies and another cabinet member put their names to it and this is the reason for John Davies' relative contrition on the matter. He might be a hard headed, self serving, arrogant man, but he isn't stupid. I think he sees the writing on the wall and is distancing himself for when the sh!t really hits the fan.

Paul Miller has done a great job on this, no matter what people say about it being personal. I understand his statement after last week's meeting about that secret meeting "not being the end of the matter".

Paul, Stodds, Jacob and others must feel like they've been banging their heads against a brick wall coming up against whitewash investigations which the Police and other authorities have been loath to get their teeth into properly. Let's hope there's real evidence surrounding the latest allegation that is too strong for the Police to ignore.

It was bad enough that BPJ was PRESENT at the meeting where this decision was taken. He won't be able to swerve the issue if it's found that he instigated it and worded the report himself.

How they can have proof of that is anyone's guess. Must be member of staff close to him? His PA? Or a Microsoft Word document with details of the author on it possibly, similar to that used by Stodds in the misuse of council computers for electioneering story.

Fingers crossed.....

I would have thought that as the Gloucestershire Constabulary have already carried out "an investigation" into the unlawful pension contibution payments, then surely an investigation in respect of the "new information" provided by a whistleblower should be carried out by a different Constabulary to avoid any conflict of interest. As PCC seems to be lurching from one crisis to another; Pupil Referral Unit issues, failing secondary schools, "unlawful" pension payments and now the matter of a member of PCC staff who was a child abuser, surely the WAG MUST now step in a take control of PCC (as happened with Anglesey/Ynys Mon Council).

Almost certainly. The problem being that such is the CEO's certainty that the IPG will do as he wants, he walked into the trap knowing they would pull him out.

At least we were aware that the problem with Taskers was coming. The Education O&S had interviewed the head etc. Standards at the school had been slipping for several years. In fact the corner has been turned. The Head has gone and rapid improvement is now being made. The support special measures will give will crystallise this improvement.

Now the school and it's children need our support.
much improvement noted now we wait for exam results, and another estyn report for both the schools in haverfordwest.

Interesting news from the Pembrokeshire press that Gloucestershire Police are conducting a criminal investigating after new evidence emerged over the unlawful pension payments, paid to chief executive Bryn Parry Jones and another unnamed officer.

It seems that a whistleblower contacted the Labour leader, Cllr Paul Miller with an allegation that it was not the Director of Finance and Head of HR who wrote the original report to the senior staff committee as claimed, but Bryn Parry-Jones himself. Cllr Miller reported the matter to the police on July 9th and today they issued this statement;

"Following receipt of new information relating to Pembrokeshire County Council and the Public Interest report published by the Wales Audit Office early this year, Dyfed-Powys Police and Gloucestershire Constabulary have now fully considered this and as a result have decided the new information specifically should be investigated further by the police".

Hopefully it will be more thorough than the last time.

Cllr Miller has called for Bryn Parry-Jones' immediate suspension.

I am not sure if Bryn Parry-Jones is a member of the Freemasons, if he is we could end up having a real battle.

The Freemasons are one of the most secretive and controversial religious groups in the world. Masons have existed for centuries – and if we are to believe their claims, they’ve existed covertly for even longer. 

Whatever their history, speculation has always been an enjoyable pastime – and this is especially true in the case of the Masons’ more scandalous secrets. Having passed down traditions and secrets from one generation of initiates to the next, they make it difficult to know what’s outdated and what’s still practiced. Consider these masonic activities as provisional facts – we don’t know for sure, but it’s always an interesting exercise to imagine what might be going on behind our backs.


They will not testify truthfully against each other. Freemasons are commanded not to testify truthfully when another Mason is on trial. They admit that it may be perjury, but to them, it is a far greater sin to not protect one of their own.



They work to control politics and finance.The official corruption of Masonry is well-documented, but often covered up. Half a million Masons in England are disproportionately involved in banking, politics, and government. Even hospitals and universities are often controlled by the Masons.

 That are just a few..

Lets hope the Gloucestershire Constabulary carry out a honest investigation.
