Welcome to Wales Today, our top stories -

:00:00.:00:00.

First Minister Carwyn Jones in Norway says EU citizens should

:00:00.:00:00.

not face barriers if they come to work in Wales after Brexit.

:00:07.:00:11.

Should Wales be given control of immigration?

:00:12.:00:15.

That's the call tonight from a group of MPs.

:00:16.:00:32.

EU citizens shouldn't face barriers if they come

:00:33.:00:36.

here to work after Brexit, so says the First Minister.

:00:37.:00:39.

Carwyn Jones was speaking during a visit to Norway.

:00:40.:00:41.

It isn't part of the European Union but accepts many of its laws

:00:42.:00:46.

and its rules on immigration as a member of the single market.

:00:47.:00:49.

From the Norwegian capital Oslo, our political

:00:50.:00:53.

By coming here, Carwyn Jones is sending a signal that he wants

:00:54.:01:01.

To stay in the single market, Norway must allow EU workers

:01:02.:01:08.

to come here freely, even though it's not

:01:09.:01:10.

To keep our access to the single market, Carwyn Jones says

:01:11.:01:17.

we should be prepared to do something similar.

:01:18.:01:20.

I know that many people are not happy with the

:01:21.:01:22.

current system of freedom of movement so that can't stay exactly

:01:23.:01:25.

as it is, I think that's right to say.

:01:26.:01:27.

What I've suggested is people should have freedom

:01:28.:01:29.

The First Minister visited a sixth form college this morning and wants

:01:30.:01:37.

to learn from Norway's government to find out whether a soft

:01:38.:01:41.

Brexit which keeps the UK in the single market is possible.

:01:42.:01:46.

But while he is in Norway, the Norwegian Prime Minister

:01:47.:01:49.

has been in Germany, where she had this warning.

:01:50.:01:53.

I fear a very hard Brexit but I hope we will find a

:01:54.:01:57.

There has to be give and take to stay in

:01:58.:02:02.

Norway has also high number of EU migrants coming in,

:02:03.:02:08.

in fact we have higher per capita migrants in Norway than in the UK.

:02:09.:02:14.

But in Norway migration from the EU is seen as positive.

:02:15.:02:21.

Norwegians have voted against EU membership in the past and this

:02:22.:02:28.

Norwegian PhD student based in Cardiff University says there is no

:02:29.:02:32.

Aall parties have agreed to leave the debate

:02:33.:02:37.

because the opinion polls always show people are Eurosceptic.

:02:38.:02:41.

A red white and blue Brexit is what Theresa May wants.

:02:42.:02:44.

Today Carwyn Jones attacked her for not making clear

:02:45.:02:48.

Conservatives say his visit to Oslo is grandstanding.

:02:49.:02:54.

We are the fifth largest economy in the world,

:02:55.:02:56.

we have a great trading relationship with countries across the globe and

:02:57.:02:59.

If the First Minister wishes to go to Oslo

:03:00.:03:05.

and look at what Norway is doing, yes, what we need to be crafting

:03:06.:03:08.

out here is a British relationship with Europe.

:03:09.:03:10.

We are in uncharted territory says Carwyn Jones and no country

:03:11.:03:15.

has left the EU before, and no other country,

:03:16.:03:18.

including Norway, provides a ready-made blueprint to describe

:03:19.:03:23.

Norway had to build its own relationship with Europe.

:03:24.:03:29.

The UK will have to do the same when it

:03:30.:03:32.

formally starts the Brexit process in March.

:03:33.:03:37.

A children's football coach who took ecstacy for the first time

:03:38.:03:41.

died after falling into a river and drowned.

:03:42.:03:44.

An inquest was told 21-year-old Jordan Miers

:03:45.:03:48.

was seen confused and disorientated after leaving a work's Christmas

:03:49.:03:52.

His body was recovered from the city's Marina three weeks later.

:03:53.:04:00.

A television channel specialising in Extreme Sports has been unveiled

:04:01.:04:04.

as the latest business partner for the the proposed

:04:05.:04:06.

Those behind the project are hoping to build the ?425 million

:04:07.:04:13.

400 staff at the JCB factory in Wrexham will be involved

:04:14.:04:20.

in supplying the United States army with a fleet of forklift trucks.

:04:21.:04:25.

They'll be producing axles for 1,600 rough terrain vehicles.

:04:26.:04:28.

It's one of the biggest single orders in JCB's history.

:04:29.:04:35.

Should Wales be given control over immigration?

:04:36.:04:37.

That's the call tonight from a group of MPs who say devolving some

:04:38.:04:41.

powers over the system, such as visas and migration quotas,

:04:42.:04:45.

The UK Government says any changes would lead to complications.

:04:46.:04:52.

Our political reporter Carl Roberts has the story.

:04:53.:04:58.

Immigration is never far from the headlines.

:04:59.:05:00.

Today's debate - who should set the rules for people wanting to

:05:01.:05:03.

A report from a group of MPs and peers

:05:04.:05:08.

says the Welsh Government should have a say and is calling on the

:05:09.:05:11.

UK Government to seriously consider devolving a degree of control over

:05:12.:05:15.

immigration policy powers to the nations and regions to help

:05:16.:05:18.

It also wants an independent commission to explore

:05:19.:05:22.

Our report recommends an independent commission

:05:23.:05:26.

to explore how a devolved, regionally-led system

:05:27.:05:30.

might give people a greater sense of democratic

:05:31.:05:34.

control over immigration and change in their area.

:05:35.:05:37.

Shaping immigration criteria to address national or regional

:05:38.:05:42.

needs will instil greater confidence that the system works for your area

:05:43.:05:47.

The report also suggests looking at the system in place in Canada,

:05:48.:05:53.

were all ten provincial governments are allowed to set specific

:05:54.:05:56.

requirements for immigrants and have some control over visas.

:05:57.:06:01.

Some question whether this kind of system would work here in Wales.

:06:02.:06:05.

In some ways it would make sense because education and housing

:06:06.:06:10.

are already devolved issues but in other ways it may complicate

:06:11.:06:15.

things because asylum and immigration are obviously

:06:16.:06:19.

not devolved and asylum seekers are frequently rooted around

:06:20.:06:21.

the UK on a no-choice basis so they would have to look

:06:22.:06:24.

at that policy again if they want to devolve these issues.

:06:25.:06:28.

Others say immigration rules tailored to the needs of Wales

:06:29.:06:31.

Wales' economic profile is different to the rest of the UK.

:06:32.:06:36.

We have a larger dependency on manufacturing and

:06:37.:06:38.

we're the only country in the UK that is a net

:06:39.:06:41.

exporter of goods, so having our own ability to issue work visas and work

:06:42.:06:47.

permits would give us an increased advantage, I think, in terms of

:06:48.:06:51.

boosting our economy and helping support the NHS as well.

:06:52.:06:55.

The Welsh Government has welcomed the MPs report and says it

:06:56.:06:58.

would like to see the needs of Wales represented in

:06:59.:07:01.

any future UK Government immigration policy but the UK Government isn't

:07:02.:07:04.

so keen and says having different immigration policies

:07:05.:07:08.

for different parts of the UK would complicated the system.

:07:09.:07:16.

Swansea City's new man in charge, Paul Clement, faced the media

:07:17.:07:22.

The 44-year-old who's agreed to a two and a half year deal

:07:23.:07:26.

says his priority is to bring stability to the club.

:07:27.:07:28.

He's the club's third boss this season.

:07:29.:07:34.

I could have stayed at Bayern and had a great chance to win

:07:35.:07:37.

the league there and advance into the further stages

:07:38.:07:39.

But I've done that in the last six or seven years and I want another

:07:40.:07:46.

challenge and this is going to be really exciting.

:07:47.:07:48.

The return of the rain tomorrow, Derek's got the forecast.

:07:49.:07:59.

It is all change tomorrow. In the meantime blue sky and sunshine for

:08:00.:08:07.

most of Wales today. Gorgeous in Snowdonia, perfect walking weather

:08:08.:08:10.

that it won't be as nice as this tomorrow. Temperatures down to frost

:08:11.:08:15.

levels in places but not everywhere. Milder in the west. Through the rest

:08:16.:08:21.

of the night the cloud will spread and it will lift temperatures.

:08:22.:08:24.

Breezy in the west with the odd spot of rain on Anglesey. Tomorrow

:08:25.:08:29.

morning, less clothes but fairly cloudy. A little rain spreading

:08:30.:08:33.

across northern and western counties. Breezy on the Lleyn

:08:34.:08:39.

Peninsula. Across the rest of the UK, fog patches will lift. Dry and

:08:40.:08:43.

bright in London and Portsmouth. A different story further north. Great

:08:44.:08:48.

with outbreaks of rain. The rain moving towards the Midlands during

:08:49.:08:56.

the afternoon. Chilly in Norwich tomorrow, a mild 9 degrees Belfast.

:08:57.:09:00.

In Wales tomorrow, the weather going downhill. Cloudy with outbreaks of

:09:01.:09:07.

heavy rain lightly. Temperatures slowly rising, up to 11 Celsius on

:09:08.:09:13.

Anglesey. Tomorrow evening, further rain that it will eventually

:09:14.:09:17.

clearing away. Dry overnight and remaining misty and murky. A mild

:09:18.:09:22.

night. Into Saturday, mist and fog patches will lift with the odd spot

:09:23.:09:27.

of light rain or drizzle. Otherwise it is looking dry and the cloud will

:09:28.:09:31.

break allowing a little sunshine. Temperatures on the mild side. It is

:09:32.:09:37.

a similar story on Sunday. Cloudy and dry. Rain on Monday, windy as

:09:38.:09:43.

well. After all the sunshine today and the frost, it looks like the

:09:44.:09:47.

rain will return tomorrow. See you soon.

:09:48.:09:48.

That's Wales Today, thank you for watching.

:09:49.:09:51.

From all of us on the programme, goodnight.
