Plaid leader says Wales 'spectator' on funding reform

A pledge by the three Westminster leaders to keep the funding system for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland has been criticised by Plaid Cymru.

A letter from David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg in a Scottish newspaper pledged to retain the Barnett formula in the event of a no vote.

Under the system, Scotland gets more spending per head than the UK average.

The Welsh government has said it is £300m less than it should receive.

Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood, who is campaigning for a Yes vote in Scotland, said the First Minister Carwyn Jones has failed to stand up for Wales in terms of getting guarantees over future funding.

She told BBC Wales that Wales had been left a "spectator nation" over reform.
