Welsh assembly members set for £10,000 pay rise

Members of the Welsh assembly could get a £10,000 pay rise after the 2016 election, the body which sets their salaries has said.

The increase would be 18% more than their current basic pay of around £54,000.

First Minister Carwyn Jones and members of his cabinet would see their pay rise to £140,000 and £100,000 respectively.

Sandy Blair, chair of the remuneration board, said the increase would reflect the responsibility of the job.

Daniel Davies reports.
