Clerk to the Lord Lieutenant

The Lord Lieutenant may appoint whichever person of standing and integrity he wishes to be clerk of the Lieutenancy. In many areas the role is normally filled by the Chief Executive of the County Council if they are willing to undertake the duties. Much day to day work may in practice be delegated to another employee of the Local Authority.

The Clerk to the Lord Lieutenant for Gwent is Paul Matthews, Chief Executive, Monmouthshire County Council
