The first-ever Lib Dem Wales Office minister will provide a 'distinctive, Welsh Liberal Democrat voice' at the heart of government, according to the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg. And he's defended the decision not to pay Baroness Randerson, who was appointed in this week's reshuffle.
Mr Clegg also refused to say whether or not the Wales Office should drop its proposals for changing the way the Assembly is elected, despite his opposition to boundary changes planned for Westminster elections. 'These things will play themselves out,' he said.
