Two Welsh Labour MPs have added their voices to the calls for Sepp Blatter to stand down as President of FIFA following the arrests in Switzerland as part of an FBI anti-corruption investigation. The Football Association of Wales has said it will vote against Sepp Blatter's re-election as FIFA President.
Rhondda MP Chris Bryant, who's the new Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, spoke on behalf of the Labour Party when the FIFA arrests were raised at Westminster.
Stephen Doughty MP suggested that Sepp Blatter was not the only FIFA officlal who should quit. He said that after years of allegations about the Zurich based organisation, the Swiss authorities also had some questions to answer.
The Secretary of State, John Whittingdale, said the Swiss authorities were now clearly taking the matter very seriously and working with the FBI. He said a change in leadership at FIFA was badly needed and he was pleased that the UK's four football's associations were all backing UEFA's call for action. He added that "this is merely the latest sorry episode to suggest that FIFA is a deeply flawed and corrupt organisation".
Rhondda MP Chris Bryant has been appointed Shadow Culture Secretary by the acting Labour Leader, Harriet Harman, who did the job herself under Ed Miliband. Mr Bryant has been a vocal critic in the last few days of Labour's election campaign. Shadow Welsh Secretary Owen Smith has kept his job in the reshuffle.
Speaking ahead of today's roundtable in Parliament, Chris Bryant MP said:
A new campaign is being launched to raise awareness of the dangers of concussion in sport.
Today Chris Bryant MP (Labour), and Baroness Grey-Thompson (Crossbencher) will chair a Parliamentary roundtable looking at the issue.
Members of the English and Scottish Rugby Unions, the Football Association and the Professional Footballer's Association will attend the roundtable, as well as leading concussion campaigners Lewis Moody, Rory Lamont and Peter Robinson.
It's hoped today's roundtable will be a chance for key figures in the sporting world to discuss what more can be done to ensure players of all levels of sport, play in a competitive but safe environment.
Tesco has released its recruitment policy for its new Essex distribution centre after relocating it from Harlow to Dagenham.
The supermarket chain reacted after reports that the shadow immigration minister Chris Bryant had planned to claim it employed foreign workers because they were cheaper than local ones.
His modified speech, delivered this morning, had removed the claim.
The charter promises to "do everything possible to secure as many positions possible for Colleagues at Harlow DC [distribution centre] to transfer to the Dagenham DC" and to "engage with the local people."

Labour's immigration minister Chris Bryant toned down his speech on the impact of foreign labour on the UK labour market, omitting some of the extracts reportedly leaked to the Sunday Telegraph.
Mr Bryant dropped key passages from the speech, and made it clear that he did not label either of the companies "unscrupulous"
He did however criticise Next for using a recruitment agency that has an entirely Polish website, and he said both companies need to look at why they take on significant numbers of workers from overseas. Libby Weiner reports.
Tesco have welcomed Chris Bryant's praise during his speech on immigration and the labour market, and stressed the "vast majority" of the people they recruited for their Dagenham store are British and live locally.
