Clarity sought by WLGA over proposed council mergers

The body representing Welsh councils wants clarity from the first minister on plans to merge local authorities.

The Williams Commission, set up by the Welsh government, published a report in January recommending the 22 councils should be merged to between 10 and 12.

The report also called for cross-party agreement on the way forward by Easter but it has not happened and the Welsh government is targeting the summer.

But the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) wants a clear timescale.

Bethan Lewis from the BBC's Sunday Politics Wales spoke to Plaid Cymru's Rhodri Glyn Thomas, political commentator Gareth Hughes and then WLGA chief executive Steve Thomas.
