The Labour group in the Assembly has defended its decision to say no to a request to film a behind-the-scenes documentary.
The party has been criticised for blocking bids from ITV and BBC Wales to produce programmes as part of coverage of next year's Welsh election campaign.
Opposition parties released a letter from the Presiding Officer saying that she was 'unable to secure unanimous approval' for the project even though she told party leaders that it was 'a fantastic opportunity.'
Conservative, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat AMs backed the move but Labour AMs were concerned about the impact of the filming.
The group has issued this statement:
Opposition parties had earlier made it clear that they weren't responsible for vetoing the request when they released the Presiding Officer's letter to party leaders which you can read below:
The Welsh Liberal Democrats said it was a 'huge shame' that the request had been blocked.
Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies took to twitter to voice his disappointment.
I've now seen the original letter of 8 October referred to by Rosemary Butler.
The Presiding Officer was enthusiastic about the 'fantastic opportunity' to increase engagement and raise awareness of the Senedd. And she said there would be steps put in place to mitigate the concerns raised by the fact that AMs wouldn't have any final say over the finished programme.
Here's an extract from that letter.
