Questions to Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb in the House of Commons have been postponed so that MPs can pay tribute to the Queen instead. He was due to answer Welsh questions on Wednesday, the day Her Majesty becomes Britain's longest-reigning monarch.
There's an air of change about the Wales Office which was evident in the new ministerial team's first press briefing in Cardiff. Welsh Secretary David Jones admitted the relationship between Welsh Government and the his department 'might have been better' over the last two years.
He refused to blame either his predecessor or ministers in Cardiff and said his first meeting with Carwyn Jones had gone well, with both agreeing that a joint approach between the two governments is needed to boost our economy. He hinted at good news in the pipeline on some big projects.
As well as more conciliatory language, the other noticeable change was two deputy ministers. Baroness Randerson said her role was to ensure coalition government is 'reinforced.' Stephen Crabb said he'll continue to work as a whip on Welsh issues but will answer Commons questions.
