21,000 Wales public sector jobs at threat, says auditor
Up to 21,000 public sector jobs could be lost in Wales over four years, a spending watchdog has warned.
In a stark report on public services, the Wales Audit Office (WAO) also says the Welsh NHS faces a tougher funding settlement than the rest of the UK.
A WAO report projects a cash shortfall of up to £570m for the NHS by 2013-14.
Auditor general Huw Vaughan Thomas gave his views on what it may mean for the public sector in Wales.
