Institute to provide fresh thinking on public services in Wales

A team of academics and researchers is being set up to give ministers fresh thinking on how to improve Wales' public services.

They will form part of the Public Policy Institute for Wales (PPIW) which is being launched at a cost of up to £450,000 over three years.

The institute will give Welsh government ministers access independent experts from Wales, the UK and beyond.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said it was crucial to get more from public money.

Prof Steve Martin, director of the PPIW, spoke to Oliver Hides on the BBC's Good Morning Wales programme.
