Opposition parties in the national assembly have claimed they were being sidelined in vital discussion with Europe over aid, reports The Western Mail (p1).

But the criticisms, which came in a joint statement issued by Plaid Cymru, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats, were rejected by the Labour administration.

First secretary Rhodri Morgan's spokesman said Mr Morgan was anxious to involve all parties in the on-going talks about its plans to use up to£1.2bn of aid.

The three parities will today call on the economic development committee chair Val Field to put consideration of last week's criticisms of the aid bid by the European Commission at the top of its agenda.
