In a debate this afternoon on the Welsh Government's plans to buy Cardiff Airport, called by the Welsh Conservatives, Shadow Transport Minister Byron Davies said that buying the airport is 'hardly a sensible option' when vital investment is needed elsewhere.
Liberal Democrat transport spokeswoman Eluned Parrott claimed that the First Minister was now 'over a barrel in terms of the price, having promised to buy it before he agreed on the price.'
Business Minister Edwina Hart defended the Welsh Government's bid, saying 'there are many successful examples of publicly-owned airports'. She said it wasn't their intention to directly operate the airport, but to get a 'qualified specialist operator' to do so on their behalf.
