Given the serious nature of Professor Andrews report on care in the Princess of Wales Hospital and Neath Port Talbot Hospital, the tone during First Minister's questions was one of gravity unlike the usual knock about that we have come to expect.
The leader of the Opposition, Andrew RT Davies was first to take to the floor.
He began by reciting some of the report's findings that listed how some of the patients were failed by the NHS.
The list was indeed hard to hear.
He asked the First Minister if the public was owed an unreserved apology. The First Minister admitted it was.
For weeks now , Andrew RT Davies has been calling for a full wide ranging Keogh style inquiry into the NHS. Such an inquiry was backed today by the Plaid Leader.
To this the First Minister said that he would follow the recommendations of the report. He said that the report itself made it clear that this is not a Mid Staffordshire situation. He said that it was not a case for further public inquiry and he ended by emphasising that this was not a case where heads would roll.
Kirsty Williams was the last party leader to make a contribution which she did in typically effective and dramatic style
The First Minister, Carwyn Jones made this reply.
