Sir Terry Matthews letters 'could harm economy' Welsh government says

Releasing an exchange of letters between telecoms tycoon Sir Terry Matthews and the first minister could "harm the Welsh economy", the Welsh government claims.

BBC Wales made a request under the Freedom of Information Act to see the correspondence, sent last autumn.

The letters were sent during widespread speculation that Carwyn Jones was about to reshuffle his cabinet.

This included possibly moving Enterprise Minister Edwina Hart, who kept her job after a reshuffle in March.

James Williams reports for BBC Wales Today.
