The Western Mail reports (p2) that the party has been warned against forcing up council tax bills to pay for the new powers local authorities will get.
Independent leader-elect of Powys UA, Michael Jones said: 'Powers are one thing, but finance is another. I think the whole thing needs thinking out in depth.'
Councils would like to be given responsibility for tourism, Mr Jones said. Councils would be more efficient than quangos in dealing with economic development, planning and conservation, Labour believes, reports the paper.
Shadow Welsh secretary Ron Davies will meet Welsh council leaders on Monday to discuss which quangos should be axed under Labour's devolution plans.
