The Observer carried a feature (p9) which claims that Wales' two largest cities - Cardiff and Swansea - are fighting an increasingly acrimonious battle to be the home of the new Welsh assembly.
It goes on to say that Scottish secretary Donald Dewar's announcement that the Scottish parliament will be situated at Holyrood 'confirmed what council leaders throughout Scotland had feared all along'. Mr Dewar had said the decision was about restoring the importance of Edinburgh.
Glasgow City Council had commissioned consultant Pieda to forecast the impact an Edinburgh-based parliament would have on Scotland's second city, the Observer says.
Pieda forecasted that 92% of the estimated 2,500 jobs created by the parliament would be based in Edinburgh. In addition, the parliament would spend about£35m in Edinburgh but only£5m in the rest of Scotland, it said.
