Carwyn Jones says he has begun a new era of open government today by publishing a report on how much progress his government has made towards achieving its objectives. It claims that there has been investment in growth, quicker access to NHS services, success rates of apprentices and greater support for small businesses.
The idea is that in future years it will be possible to compare progress over the previous 12 months. This first report gives only limited opportunity to do that and the opposition parties have complained of a lack of clear, useful and new information.
The government insists that it is making progress and is giving more detail than ever before. But the opposition say today's report would be a lot more meaningful if there had been clear targets set when the Programme for Government was set last year.
