"Use devolved powers more effectively" urges Welsh Secretary

Welsh Secretary David Jones will tonight endose the current devolution settlement and urge the Welsh Government to be be more outward looking.

He'll be speaking at an event hosted by Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre, where he's expected to say the current model avoids a one size fits all approach and allows Scotland and Wales to adapt and evolve to changing circumstances.

He's also expected to take a swipe at the Welsh Government urging them to use the powers they have more effectively.
