Silk Commission: Tax powers call expected from inquiry

The Welsh government should take responsibility for raising some of its budget from taxes, a cross-party inquiry is expected to say.

New powers would mean ministers in Cardiff could vary a range of taxes for the first time.

The first report of the Silk Commission will suggest ways to make the Welsh government more accountable for the money it spends.

It was set up by the UK government to look at the future of devolution.

BBC Wales political reporter Carl Roberts explains.
