  5. Economic action plan published by Christmas

    First Minister Carwyn Jones says the Welsh Conservatives seem to think the Welsh Government has a "magic money tree" like the one found, he adds, by the UK government for the deal with the DUP to keep the Conservatives in government.

    Mr Jones promises the economic action plan will be published by Christmas.

    He says the new national strategy "complements the ambitious pledges" set out in Taking Wales Forward, "including setting up a new treatment fund and increasing spending on school standards".

    He says he's concerned by the "risk" of handing ownership of valleys lines to the Welsh Government, as does the "sad plight of freight" in the valleys.

  20. Railway powers may not be given to Cardiff until 2018

    Earlier today AMs were told that power to decide who runs most of Wales' rail services may not be given to Cardiff until 2018.

    The Welsh Government is set to ask for formal bids to run the Wales and Borders service this week.

    A senior official told AMs that will be under an agreement with the UK government, despite Welsh Ministers expecting to have taken over the process by now.

    The final contracts may also be awarded under a similar joint deal.
