First Minister Carwyn Jones wants new funding system for Wales

First Minister Carwyn Jones has called for a new funding system that meets the needs of public services in Wales.

It sets him against Downing Street and his own party's leadership, which has said it will keep the existing system.

The UK government uses the Barnett formula to decide the size of its funding to the Welsh government.

Mr Jones said the formula, devised in the 1970s, was "the constitutional equivalent of fixing a hole in the roof with Blu Tack and cardboard".

BBC Wales political correspondent Daniel Davies asked Mr Jones who was going to pay for Wales' funding.
