First Minister Carwyn Jones has told ITV News the St David Awards are an important addition to the existing honours system.
Money's very tight at the moment; we've already got an honours system - why do we need the St David Awards as well? Because it's important that we have a system that complements the existing honours.
It's not an enormous cost - but it does mean we can say to people 'thanks for what you've done, thanks for the contribution you've made to Welsh life'.
