Council tax benefit scheme delay warning in Wales
Council tax benefits for 330,000 homes in Wales could be delayed after the Welsh government lost a crucial vote.
At their last full meeting of the year, Welsh assembly members declined to temporarily set aside rules so new regulations could be rushed through.
As a result, First Minister Carwyn Jones said he might try to get the assembly recalled during Christmas.
But opposition AMs accused his Labour government of treating the assembly and the public with contempt. Arwyn Jones reports.
