Shadow Middle East minister Ian Lucas speaks about conditions for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. The Wrexham MP has just returned from a trip to see the refugee camps for himself.
In this interview for Sharp End, he tells Adrian Masters what he heard and saw about the difficulties people fleeing from the fighting in Syria are still experiencing.
Wrexham MP and Shadow Middle East Minister Ian Lucas has just returned from Lebanon where he's witnessed first hand the plight of people fleeing the civil war in Syria. He'll be speaking about his experiences in this week's Sharp End.
You can hear more about the situation in Lebanon and what Ian Lucas experienced at 1035pm on ITV Cymru Wales. Below are some of the photos he took during his visit.
The MPs were surprised to see snow around the camps. Wintry weather is adding to the difficulties faced by people fleeing the fighting in Syria.
The refugee camps aren't official and lack basic amenities.
In an interview for this week's Sharp End, Leanne Wood tells me that Plaid Cymru's 'central and core aim is to achieve an independent Wales.' Long-term Plaid-watchers will say that that aim hasn't always been clearly stated and she agrees.
She also agrees that Wales is a long way from being in the position Scotland finds itself and seriously deciding whether or not to break away from the rest of the UK. But she tells me 'things change and things can change very quickly.'
I'll be discussing what she says and any other ways that Wales could be affected by developments in Scotland with my guests in tonight's Sharp End at 1035pm on ITV Cymru Wales.
