Cheryl Gillan: 'Economy before more powers in Wales'

Former Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan has called for the Welsh government to work with the UK government to boost the economy rather than concentrate on gaining more powers.

Mrs Gillan, who was replaced by Clwyd West MP David Jones in last week's cabinet reshuffle, said she would rather put devolution on hold whilst that was being done.

She told BBC Radio Wales that delivering rail electrification in south Wales had been the highlight of her time as the first female Welsh secretary.

Bethan Rhys Roberts began by asking her about the reshuffle.
