Opposition leader: group has 'no issues' with tax-cut call

Following my earlier update, Opposition leader Andrew RT Davies insists there are 'no issues' within the Welsh Conservative group about his tax cut call. Details of the full story are here.

North Wales AM Antoinette Sandbach says her tweet this morning was about EU agriculture policy and not a dig at her boss. However she still clearly has questions as she told her followers that 'I support tax cut proposals, but want to see these targetted at the squeezed middle.'

Mr Davies told me that, as far as he's concerned, 'everyone in the group is content' with all the ideas he raised in his lecture last night. But he also said that dissent is welcome in the Conservative Assembly group, and criticised other parties for 'Cuban' efforts to stifle their members.
