As MPs and peers pay tribute to Margaret Thatcher, Wales Office minister Stephen Crabb tells Political Editor Adrian Masters how her 'right to buy' scheme for council house tenants, inspired him when he was growing up 'in a council house in West Wales.'
And he dismisses suggestions that the former Prime Minister caused distress to communities in Wales, saying that she 'had a great affection for Wales.'
Budget: Welsh Government to get £104m extra according to minister
The Welsh Government will get an extra £104m over the next two years from the budget, according to the Wales Office minister Stephen Crabb. He says that Wales will only see its budget reduced by 0.2% compared to a 1% cut in other Whitehall departments.
And he says that cut will be off-set by an increase in the knock-on effect of spending in England on devolved areas like health and education, meaning a small increase of £104m.
