Have we a Counsel General?

In the cabinet changes John Griffiths was named Counsel General and Leader of the Legislative Programme. But is he Counsel General? Surely not, for that can only happen when and if the Assembly vote him into the role. And as they are all off on the holidays this won't happen until after Christmas. So no new big salary until the new year for the Griffiths household. Although as leader of the legislative programme he has the responsibility for arranging the Assembly's agenda. Me thinks the Counsel General vote may feature early in Assembly business.
Just  for the record Carwyn Jones's cabinet:
Ieuan Wyn Jones, Deputy First Minister and Minister for the Economy & Transport
Jane Hutt, Business and Budget
Edwina Hart, Health and Social Services
Jane Davidson, Environment, Sustainability and Housing
Leighton Andrews, Children, Education and Lifelong Learning
Carl Sargent, Social Justice and Local Government
Elin Jones, Rural Affairs
Alun Ffred Jones, Heritage

Deputy Ministers:
Lesley Griffiths, Skills, Innovation & Science
Jocelyn Davies, Housing and Regeneration
Gwenda Thomas, Social Services
Huw Lewis, Children

John Griffiths, Counsel General & Leader of the Legislative Programme
Janice Gregory, Chief Whip
