    The number of people out of work in the UK has fallen by 77,000 to a five year low of 2.24m in the three months to February, official figures have shown.

    At the same time, average earnings in the three months to February grew 1.7% compared with a year earlier. With the latest figures out this week showing a fall in inflation to 1.6% in March that means wages are now increasing faster than inflation, for the first time in six years (apart from 2 months in 2010).

    Emergency ambulance response times in February were the worst they have been since a new system was introduced in 2011, figures published today have shown.

    Just 51% of emergency responses to Category A (immediately life-threatening) calls in Cardiff arrived at the scene within 8 minutes. This is despite the target being for 65% of ambulances to arrive within that time. The all-Wales figures are the worst since a new classification system was introduced in 2011.

    An £800 income tax cut for people in Cardiff Central is the real budget boost, Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Jenny Willott has said.

    Last month's Budget revealed plans to increase the personal allowance from April 2015 and put an extra £100 back in taxpayers' pockets.

    Lib Dems have already delivered a £700 tax cut for low to middle earners, but today's news goes even further. The number of people who will benefit from a cut to the personal allowance in Cardiff Central is expected to be 31,140 - while over 136,000 people will benefit across Cardiff as a whole.

    Assembly Members have voted through Kirsty Williams AMs' proposals for minimum nurse staffing levels to be enshrined in law.

    In December, Kirsty Williams was successful in the National Assembly's ballot to introduce backbench legislation. Her proposal would see Wales become the first country in the UK with a legal duty on safe nurse staffing levels.
