Welsh Government praise for Lib Dem ideas

A Welsh Government source tells me that reaching a budget deal with Plaid Cymru 'in no way means we're dissing the Lib Dems; quite the opposite.' The party put forward proposals for a health technologies fund during negotiations.

The source said: 'We want to recognise publicly that they put forward good ideas and we want to take it forward.' The Welsh Government will also continue and increase the pupil deprivation grant agreed with the Lib Dems last year.

But I'm also told neither move is dependent on the Lib Dems supporting the budget.
