As we know Deputy Mayor Kit Malthouse AM is an extremely publicity shy person, but there must – even for him – be a quiet sense of pride that one day soon there may be a piece of legislation that will be forever remembered as containing the Kit Malthouse clause.

And here it is – Schedule 3 Paragraph 4 (6) of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill:

(6)     Section 7 of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 (appointment of staff on merit) does not apply to the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime.
