First Minister: Welsh ideas prominent within Labour Party

First Minister Carwyn Jones has told our Political Editor Adrian Masters he's confident Welsh Labour will have a strong input into the direction of the party. The annual party conference has got underway in Manchester, and Wales is the only part of the UK where Labour is in government.

"I know they'll be looking at what's happening in Wales when the manifesto for the election is drawn up in 2015, and they have in Wales of course an example of a Labour government putting policies into action", the First Minister said.

Party leader Ed Miliband is "always very interested in what's happening in Wales."
