The First Minister has paid tribute to the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Denis Healey, who's died at the age of 98. Carwyn Jones said:
I am very sorry to hear about the passing of Denis Healey - a true great of the Labour movement. He continues to inspire and inform our politics today.
Next May's Welsh election will be 'the toughest [Labour] has ever faced' according to the First Minister Carwyn Jones.
The Welsh Labour leader was speaking to the party's UK Conference, the first under new leader Jeremy Corbyn.
He told delegates in Brighton that Labour will face challenges from all sides in the 2016 Assembly election, but he assured them that the party can be proud of its 'secret weapon: a record of delivery.'
I have no doubt whatsoever that the next Welsh General Election will be the toughest we have ever faced.
We slipped back in Wales in May, when we were fighting to win.
Next year the Tories will, of course, out-spend us and will use their Westminster megaphone to once again trash the record of the Welsh NHS.
And there’s danger on the fringes too – the frantic nationalism of UKIP and fantastical nationalism of Plaid Cymru will be competing hard for the votes of the disaffected.
It will be tough.
But, as Welsh Labour, we have a secret weapon. A record of delivery.
Every promise we made, we’ve delivered.
First Minister Carwyn Jones has arrived in Patagonia for the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the first landing by Welsh settlers in Argentina. He's met the Governor of Chubut Province, Martin Buzzi, and tonight they will attend a performance of music and dance in Puerto Madryn, founded by the Welsh as Porth Madryn on 28 July 1865.
Governor Buzzi earlier told the local newspaper El Diario de Madryn that the celebration of the Welsh pioneers evoked the issue of the Malvinas (Falklands) because it showed that the Argentine State respected the culture, religion and especially the language of immigrants.
The Welsh settlement in our lands belies the idea held by some islanders that under the Argentine flag they would not be respected.
The President of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner, who has previously compared the Welsh settlers with the Falkland Islanders, was also due to attend tonight's festivities. But she's cancelled all her engagements because she has laryngitis.
Welsh Government sources say David Cameron has told Carwyn Jones that he expects the Queen's Speech to include a Wales Bill devolving further powers to the Welsh Government and Assembly.
The Prime Minister and First Minister had a "cordial" phone conversation, in which David Cameron seemed surprised by suggestions from opposition parties that the bill won't be included in the legislative programme read out by the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament.
The two men are said to have spoken about the work they need to do together to secure the future of the United Kingdom, as well as other devolution issues. Carwyn Jones will meet Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb later this week for the first time since the election.
George Osborne's promise of a cut in the tolls on the Severn Bridges suggests that if he stays in office after the election he'll deny the Welsh Government control of the crossings when they return to public ownership. First Minister Carwyn Jones has said that if he had the power, he would reduce but not abolish the tolls, using the income to pay for M4 improvements as wells as maintaining the two bridges.
