'Little benefits' of Public Health Wales schemes

About £1.5m of public money was spent in Wales over the last year on 10 projects that were unlikely to bring any health benefits, a report shows.

Experts cast doubt on the benefit of schemes such as a £655,000 a year cooking bus and anti-smoking projects costing thousands.

Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar questioned Welsh government funding "harebrained schemes".

Public Health Wales (PHW) acknowledged it needed to do things differently.
