At a meeting in Downing Street, First Minister Carwyn Jones also tells David Cameron to reject plans for an airport in the Thames Estuary
First Minister Carwyn Jones says the UK and Welsh Governments have agreed to put their differences aside to work together more. He was echoing calls made by the new Welsh Secretary, David Jones. Speaking after a meeting with the Prime Minister in Downing Street this morning, the First Minister said,
Let's start again. I met with David Jones this week - it was a genuinely cordial meeting. We discussed a number of matters and there was a general expression that we need to make a fresh start and to work together where we can.
I don't think the people of Wales want us to spend the entire time arguing. That's certainly not our intention as a government and that's not the intention of David Jones as he said to me this week.
There'll be a number of areas where we can work together. There will be disagreements, that's inevitable. But I think there's a genuine desire to work together where we can in order to advance the interests of our people.
Privately sources close to the First Minister say that on a personal level, he gets on with the new Welsh Secretary far better than he did with his predecessor and finds him easier to deal with.
I understand there's an intention not to criticise David Jones unduly, but to give him chance to match warm words with actions. What the Welsh Secretary does with controversial plans to change the Assembly's election system could be the first test of that approach.
At a meeting with the Prime Minister in Downing Street, First Minister Carwyn Jones called for Air Passenger Duty to be devolved. He also told David Cameron to reject plans for a new airport to be built in the Thames estuary.
– First Minister Carwyn Jones
Heathrow is an important hub for Welsh businesses. The idea of building an airport in the Thames estuary is completely fanciful: it's too far away from South Western England and South Wales, it's far too inconvenient. So Heathrow is important: it created the M4 corridor.
But on top of that, we want to make sure that we help to build Cardiff airport and, indeed, Anglesey airport and other airports around Wales and in order to do that it would help to have Air Passenger Duty devolved. Then we could put in place the incentives to develop our airports in Wales.
The Liberal Democrat Baroness Jenny Randerson is to be a junior minister at the Wales Office, serving under David Jones and alongside Stephen Crabb.
– Wales Office Minister Baroness Randerson
I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as a Parliamentary Under Secretary. It is a tremendous honour and privilege to be a Welsh Liberal Democrat representative in the Coalition Government. As a former Assembly Member, Welsh Government Minister and a committed devolutionist, I am particularly looking forward to developing the working relationship between the Welsh Government and the Wales Office to ensure that we all work together to enhance the lives of the people of Wales.
Former Welsh Secretary, Cheryl Gillan, has released a statement regarding today's cabinet reshuffle.
David and I have worked together for six years and he was a great
support as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State during my time as
Secretary of State and, prior to that, as a Shadow Minister in Opposition.
He is an excellent constituency MP, representing the interests of all
his constituents in Clwyd West with great vigour. I can think of no better
person to take on the mantle of Wales in the Cabinet and I wish him well.
– Cheryl Gillan, MP
I am confident he will carry out his new responsibilities and be a strong voice for Wales, challenging the decisions made in the Assembly andstanding up for the people of Wales in Westminster and elsewhere.
