Julie Morgan: Consider all-women shortlists for every seat

8 June 2014 Last updated at 13:00 BST

Women-only shortlists should be considered by the Labour Party for every Westminster seat that comes up in Wales, according to Cardiff North AM and former MP Julie Morgan.

A controversial all-female shortlist of candidates has been imposed by Labour in Cynon Valley angering some members.

A vacancy will also arise in Neath after Peter Hain said he would stand down at the 2015 general election.

Mrs Morgan said action was needed due to the shortage of women from Wales in parliament.

She spoke to BBC Wales' Mark Palmer.
