Welsh Labour are hailing their best vote share since 1997 and three seats gained in Gower, Vale of Clwyd and Cardiff North. Party sources are claiming that the very distinct campaigns fought by Carwyn Jones and Jeremy Corbyn jointly delivered a result beyond expectations.
They say Welsh Labour’s campaign, led by Carwyn Jones, connected positively with voters across Wales, while Labour’s UK campaign, led by Jeremy Corbyn, was hugely effective, especially in energising 18 – 24 year olds who voted in unprecedented numbers.
Speaking at the Labour Party's Welsh conference in Llandudno, Carwyn Jones has announced that the Welsh Government will scrap child burial costs in Wales.
It's expected to cost the Welsh Government £700,000 a year to reimburse councils the fees for children's funerals.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he understands Jo Stevens' difficulty with being asked to vote in favour of triggering Brexit. But in his response to her resignation, he said it was right that their party respected the referendum result.
I would like to thank Jo Stevens for her work as shadow Welsh Secretary. She is a great asset to the Labour Party and a strong voice for Wales.
I understand the difficulties that Jo, and other MPs, have when facing the Article 50 Bill. Those MPs with strong Remain constituencies are understandably torn.
However, it is right that the Labour Party respects the outcome of the referendum on leaving the European Union. We have said all along that Labour will not frustrate the triggering of Article 50 and to that end we are asking all MPs to vote for the Bill at its second reading next week.
I wish Jo Stevens well and look forward to working with her in the future.
