Prime Minister aims to concentrate on Olympics after coalition setback

The Prime Minister is in Wales later today. His visit comes the day after his deputy blocked plans to reduce the size of the House of Commons, including a cut in the number of Welsh MPs from 40 to 30. Nick Clegg was retaliating for the Tory revolt that's sabotaged reform of the House of Lords.

The Welsh Secretary, Cheryl Gillan, has also had her plans to reform Assembly elections put in doubt as a result. But David Cameron wants to escape the coalition's conflicts on his trip to Wales and highlight the benefits he says the Olympic Games are bringing to the whole of Britain.
