More on those Tory spending cuts

Peter Hain estimates that the Conservative's plans to chop £35 million off public spending will mean that the National Assembly for Wales will face the loss of £1 billion from its budget. It is not clear how he calculates this figure however, most probably because, like us, he does not yet know how the Tories have arrived at their total. Effectively this is a guess on the part of the Secretary of State for Wales. It is though as good a guess as any.

Meanwhile the article makes it clear that the Welsh Conservative Leader in the Assembly is floundering a bit in his attempts to square the circle. Could it be that he was left out of the loop by Mr. Letwin on this policy? Surely not!
