The Welsh Assembly does not have a legal right to be consulted

:00:00.:00:08.

I thought it was a lot of nonsense. The majority of people have already

:00:09.:00:26.

voted for it. The people have spoken, the decision has been made.

:00:27.:00:29.

Never mind what Parliament say, we want out.

:00:30.:00:30.

Where will firms like Airbus stand after Brexit?

:00:31.:00:31.

One of the company's bosses says they're entering a "dangerous

:00:32.:00:37.

They're doing well, but it's not the same across Wales -

:00:38.:00:52.

the schools watchdog says the quality of teaching is weak.

:00:53.:01:00.

The row on the railways - tonight Arriva Trains Wales defends

:01:01.:01:03.

overcrowding and the profit it makes in.

:01:04.:01:14.

I'd love to say, here are more seats and more services, but we just don't

:01:15.:01:18.

have them. And one of the country's leading

:01:19.:01:18.

conservationists says we are failing miserably to protect

:01:19.:01:21.

Pembrokeshire's porpoise. Assembly Members will not

:01:22.:01:27.

be consulted before 11 Supreme Court judges said MPs

:01:28.:01:29.

will have a vote and rejected the Welsh Government's argument that

:01:30.:01:38.

AMs should have a say before Here's our parliamentary

:01:39.:01:48.

correspondent, David Cornock. They want out, 62% of people here

:01:49.:02:02.

voted to leave, the highest proportion in Wales. There is a

:02:03.:02:06.

mixed reaction to the news that MPs will now get a vote on how that

:02:07.:02:11.

happens. I thought it was a lot of nonsense. The majority of people

:02:12.:02:16.

have already voted for it and I think the Government represents the

:02:17.:02:19.

people as well, so the Government should make a choice. Theresa May

:02:20.:02:25.

might be a Prime Minister but I think representing us all the MPs --

:02:26.:02:35.

are. Theresa May is saying she'll get the best deal. It doesn't make

:02:36.:02:40.

it so. I think it's a good thing and I think it should be scrutinised.

:02:41.:02:45.

The decision has been made so it should be left as is. My wife, get

:02:46.:02:55.

out now. Never mind what Parliament say, we want out. in London, Supreme

:02:56.:03:02.

Court judges said it was for Parliament to decide, not ministers

:03:03.:03:08.

and was no need to consult AM s. The court rules that ministers are not

:03:09.:03:14.

required to be consulted before triggering Article 50. Under the

:03:15.:03:21.

convention, AMs had to be consulted before the process of leaving the EU

:03:22.:03:26.

could begin but the judge found that it is not legally enforceable and

:03:27.:03:31.

that relations with the EU as a matter for the UK Government.

:03:32.:03:37.

Despite that, the Welsh Government's law officer was quick to claim

:03:38.:03:41.

victory. The sovereignty of Parliament has been upheld, imported

:03:42.:03:45.

to Wales because we now have a direct voice on that. We don't have

:03:46.:03:49.

a veto. Parliament remains a sovereign on the point, but we have

:03:50.:03:54.

the opportunity to influence legislation. But it will now be up

:03:55.:03:58.

to MPs whether and when divorce talks with the EU can begin. Is not

:03:59.:04:03.

unexpected and I think the British Government accept the decision and

:04:04.:04:10.

we move forward and do precisely what the court asked us to do. The

:04:11.:04:14.

Labour Party says its MPs will not try to block off a straight Brexit.

:04:15.:04:19.

I'll vote with the witches of the people of Wales and the UK and my

:04:20.:04:26.

constituents -- wishes, and vote for triggering Article 50 because this

:04:27.:04:30.

has divided the country and the constituency. but some Labour MPs

:04:31.:04:34.

say they are prepared to rebel. If it is a hard, brittle Brexit --

:04:35.:04:42.

brutal, I don't think it is in the interests of the people I represent

:04:43.:04:47.

and so I can't in all conscience recommend it as if it we take

:04:48.:04:49.

unsupported and if that means voting against the Government I will do

:04:50.:04:52.

that and if it means putting against the Labour whip, I will do that.

:04:53.:04:58.

Wheels may have voted out last June but Plaid Cymru say they will fight.

:04:59.:05:07.

I've yet to take a view, otherwise I might as well pack up after the

:05:08.:05:11.

election. I will be following the wishes of my constituency voted in

:05:12.:05:19.

favour of staying in very heavily. AMs of all parties are debating how

:05:20.:05:20.

they will make their voices heard. Let's talk to Daniel

:05:21.:05:21.

Davies in Cardiff Bay. Daniel, lots of reaction

:05:22.:05:25.

to the judgment there today. It sounds like the 11

:05:26.:05:35.

Supreme Court judges sent They all agree there's no legal

:05:36.:05:37.

reason for Theresa May But there is a political reason

:05:38.:05:43.

for parliament to listen. So if parliament must vote

:05:44.:05:47.

on Brexit, it leaves the door ajar for the Assembly

:05:48.:05:51.

to influence things. Sorry to disappoint anyone

:05:52.:05:53.

who thought the referendum had settled all of this,

:05:54.:05:55.

but that means there might be a vote here,

:05:56.:05:57.

as well as in Westminster. And I'm also sorry to disappoint

:05:58.:06:02.

anyone who hopes that a vote at Cardiff Bay could stop Brexit -

:06:03.:06:06.

it won't, the Assembly doesn't have It's worth reflecting

:06:07.:06:09.

where we are seven months Soon after, First Minister Carwyn

:06:10.:06:12.

Jones said Article 50 should be triggered sooner rather than later,

:06:13.:06:16.

that we shouldn't wait Now his Government is celebrating

:06:17.:06:18.

what it calls a victory in a court case that means things aren't quite

:06:19.:06:22.

so straight forward. Staying with Brexit,

:06:23.:06:31.

one of the bosses at Airbus says the company is "entering a dangerous

:06:32.:06:33.

phase" if it can't seamlessly move people and products

:06:34.:06:39.

around European countries. 6,000 Airbus workers are based

:06:40.:06:43.

in Broughton in Flintshire, Here's our business

:06:44.:06:45.

correspondent, Brian Meechan. Airbus brings well-paid and highly

:06:46.:06:58.

skilled jobs to the area. It says it needs to be continued moving workers

:06:59.:07:03.

freely between European plants. The company argues any new deal with the

:07:04.:07:06.

EU needs to be similar to current membership so they can remain

:07:07.:07:12.

competitive. Airbus has been in a bit of battle with its main rival

:07:13.:07:16.

Boeing for dominance in the skies. The European business has edged

:07:17.:07:19.

ahead in recent years including with 731 orders in 2016 compared to 668

:07:20.:07:28.

for the US company. Its concern is that any trade deal between

:07:29.:07:30.

President Donald Trump and the UK after Brexit will see America

:07:31.:07:36.

favouring Boeing while any EU disputes damages Airbus. Many people

:07:37.:07:42.

in Seattle and Washington would be more than delighted to see this

:07:43.:07:45.

scenario played out because they will take any opportunity to try and

:07:46.:07:52.

undermine the success of Airbus and they take the view that whatever is

:07:53.:07:55.

being decided in Washington will also be done with what is good for

:07:56.:08:01.

Seattle so we enter into a dangerous phase. the company also wants free

:08:02.:08:05.

movement of products. Airbus claims are made up from parts from across

:08:06.:08:14.

Europe. The wings from its flagship A380 are made at Broughton. The tail

:08:15.:08:19.

is manufactured in Germany. The tail, fuselage and passenger doors

:08:20.:08:24.

come from sites in Spain. The central fuselage and the nose are

:08:25.:08:28.

assembled and tested in France. All of these come together for final

:08:29.:08:32.

Assembly in Toulouse. But small firms in Wales employ around the

:08:33.:08:39.

same number in total as the larger companies like Airbus do. Bosses he

:08:40.:08:43.

received their voices need to be heard, too. I voted to leave Europe

:08:44.:08:50.

and join the Brexit camp. I personally think it's the best thing

:08:51.:08:54.

for the country long-term. The problem we have at the moment is a

:08:55.:08:58.

lot of people are taking the negative view rather than the

:08:59.:09:03.

positive view. Ministers are indicating they could import a

:09:04.:09:07.

special agreement for key sectors. According to Airbus, the

:09:08.:09:10.

Government's decision that no EU deal is better than a bad EU deal

:09:11.:09:16.

isn't a sensible fallback position. Ministers have argued they could in

:09:17.:09:19.

for a special agreement for key sectors like aerospace.

:09:20.:09:20.

Let's get a final word from David Cornock in Westminster.

:09:21.:09:23.

David, the UK Government has today lost its court battle.

:09:24.:09:25.

Now with added pressure from companies like Airbus,

:09:26.:09:29.

the Government really needs to get this right.

:09:30.:09:35.

Yes, Ginny, we've heard a lot from politicians and judges today, but in

:09:36.:09:44.

Brian's report use our a reminder that what they say will have an

:09:45.:09:50.

impact on the every day lives of people across Wales, on businesses

:09:51.:09:56.

and the economy. On Thursday, we expect MPs to get first sight of the

:09:57.:10:02.

Government's proposed law, which will be a very short one. It will

:10:03.:10:07.

simply give the Government the right to trigger Article 50, to start

:10:08.:10:11.

those divorce talks with European Union. Theresa May expects to do

:10:12.:10:15.

that by the end of March but this is the start of the process, they will

:10:16.:10:20.

be up to two years of negotiations before a final deal is reached, if

:10:21.:10:24.

indeed he deal is reached and you'll expect the politicians up there to

:10:25.:10:29.

have a vote on the final deal so this isn't the end, this is just the

:10:30.:10:31.

beginning. Police in Swansea are

:10:32.:10:33.

searching the marina Marcin Porczyk was last seen

:10:34.:10:36.

in the Wind Street area of the city Searches have concentrated

:10:37.:10:44.

on the marina and River Tawe. HSBC is to close nine

:10:45.:10:54.

branches in Wales as part of closures across the UK,

:10:55.:10:57.

including in Holyhead, Knighton, It says the number of people

:10:58.:10:59.

visiting its high street banks has fallen by almost 40% in the past

:11:00.:11:05.

five years, as more people The quality of teaching in Wales

:11:06.:11:08.

is weak and must be improved for standards in the classroom

:11:09.:11:16.

to get better. That's the warning tonight

:11:17.:11:18.

from the schools watchdog Estyn Our education correspondent

:11:19.:11:20.

Colette Hume has the story. It's the start of

:11:21.:11:30.

the day for the pupils The school has been singled out

:11:31.:11:32.

by the education watchdog We challenge ourselves

:11:33.:11:36.

on a daily basis, looking at where we can go next,

:11:37.:11:48.

numeracy skills, IT skills, and that's a big part

:11:49.:11:53.

of the curriculum at the moment and that's our next drive,

:11:54.:11:56.

to look at ICT. At this school, they're getting it

:11:57.:11:58.

right but today's report says Estyn says some pupils

:11:59.:12:00.

are underachieving because the work that teachers are setting for them

:12:01.:12:04.

isn't challenging enough while in some classes,

:12:05.:12:08.

lessons are taught so quickly, There are skills with the teaching

:12:09.:12:10.

isn't good enough and in those schools, what we're seeing

:12:11.:12:19.

in the annual report, and there's a whole chapter on this,

:12:20.:12:24.

is that they need to improve the staff development

:12:25.:12:28.

and professional learning in school. The watchdog says the school heads

:12:29.:12:32.

need to help their staff The union which represents school

:12:33.:12:35.

leaders say they want that, too. I've yet to meet a headteacher

:12:36.:12:39.

who would disagree with developing their teaching staff but it's

:12:40.:12:48.

like a parent on the sidelines shouting at children to try harder,

:12:49.:12:50.

that's not helpful. This report is another blow

:12:51.:12:52.

for education here in Wales, just weeks after the international

:12:53.:12:58.

school rankings placed Wales below the rest

:12:59.:13:01.

of the UK and behind other nations including Singapore,

:13:02.:13:04.

Slovenia and Vietnam. There is some good news for primary

:13:05.:13:05.

schools in Wales in today's report. Younger children's literacy

:13:06.:13:17.

and numeracy skills are improving. In around seven out of ten primary

:13:18.:13:19.

schools, standards were rated good or better but when it comes

:13:20.:13:22.

to secondary schools, teaching was rated good or better

:13:23.:13:26.

in only a minority of schools. On a statement, the Cabinet

:13:27.:13:29.

Secretary for education Kirsty Williams said improving

:13:30.:13:33.

teaching and leadership was one Today's report will make difficult

:13:34.:13:35.

reading for everyone involved in education here in Wales

:13:36.:13:41.

and there will be renewed questions about the standards of teaching

:13:42.:13:44.

in the nation's schools. Sticking with education,

:13:45.:13:49.

exam revision workbooks used by pupils preparing for their GCSEs

:13:50.:13:55.

have been withdrawn after research by The One Show found

:13:56.:13:59.

they contained scores of errors. The book containing the most

:14:00.:14:03.

mistakes was the one aimed at pupils sitting a WJEC maths exam,

:14:04.:14:06.

which had 90 errors in it. The exam board saidit

:14:07.:14:10.

didn't endorse the guide. You could use up quite a lot of time

:14:11.:14:20.

in convincing yourself that the error was actually in the answer

:14:21.:14:24.

given her somewhere in the question as stated. -- or somewhere. It would

:14:25.:14:32.

be the weaker students who struggle more to identify the errors than the

:14:33.:14:37.

stronger students but it could cause quite a lot of confusion with a

:14:38.:14:43.

student's revision, this number of errors could affect their

:14:44.:14:44.

performance in the exam. There's more on that

:14:45.:14:46.

on The One Show at seven. Before then, concerns tonight that

:14:47.:14:48.

we're failing miserably to protect Pembrokeshire's porpoise -

:14:49.:14:51.

we'll find out what's going wrong. And you've probably thrown

:14:52.:14:53.

yours out weeks ago - how these Christmas trees

:14:54.:14:55.

are being put to good use. Arriva Trains Wales has

:14:56.:15:09.

already faced serious Tonight, the Economy Secretary Ken

:15:10.:15:10.

Skates has stepped in, saying he believes its profit

:15:11.:15:17.

margins are too high and more should Meanwhile, it's emerged that

:15:18.:15:20.

over-crowding in Cardiff stations on the morning commute is rising

:15:21.:15:23.

at a faster rate than Overcrowding has become a regular

:15:24.:15:26.

feature for many commuters in and out of Cardiff at peak times

:15:27.:15:34.

on Arriva Trains Wales services. Rhiannon and Matt are

:15:35.:15:39.

among the commuters Now we have to wait until 6:43

:15:40.:15:40.

for the next train, if it's on time, so we now have been

:15:41.:15:55.

nearly 45 minutes. We had people standing, not a lot

:15:56.:15:58.

of room for anybody at all. A number of people using Twitter

:15:59.:16:02.

to voice their opinions and you could hear the tweets

:16:03.:16:04.

and things going off I went to this station in Cardiff

:16:05.:16:06.

during the morning rush hour to find out and failed to get on the 7:55am

:16:07.:16:20.

train myself so I had Once I'd got on the train,

:16:21.:16:23.

it was clearly very busy, standing room only, pretty much

:16:24.:16:29.

what I would have expected, but here's the key point,

:16:30.:16:37.

the train I got on had four carriages, the one before only

:16:38.:16:40.

had two carriages. Many believe the lack of capacity

:16:41.:16:42.

is down to the original contract, which did not make any allowance

:16:43.:16:45.

for passenger growth, but Arriva Trains Wales made

:16:46.:16:48.

a profit of 6.9% last year while the franchise it operates

:16:49.:16:59.

is also one of the most heavily It is to some extent galling

:17:00.:17:01.

that we have to spend an additional ?25 million or so a year

:17:02.:17:06.

on additional services above A key point here is whether Arriva

:17:07.:17:08.

Trains Wales has a responsibility to invest more profit

:17:09.:17:12.

in the service because it receives such a generous

:17:13.:17:14.

subsidy from the taxpayer. I think it's fair to say that

:17:15.:17:16.

Arriva Trains Wales should invest in a quality service wherever

:17:17.:17:24.

and whenever passengers expect it. Arriva Trains Wales say there has

:17:25.:17:28.

been a nationwide shortage Despite that, it says money

:17:29.:17:31.

is being put back into services. I'd love to say, here's more trains,

:17:32.:17:40.

give everybody a seat on those so for us, the challenge is,

:17:41.:17:43.

how do we make the best possible service we can

:17:44.:17:49.

with the trains we've got? Arriva Trains's performance also

:17:50.:17:54.

came under the spotlight during It looks to us who use the service

:17:55.:17:56.

that it is at breaking point. If it does break, you will

:17:57.:18:01.

have to do something. We want to make sure the franchise

:18:02.:18:03.

properly serves people with decent quality rolling stock and frequent

:18:04.:18:10.

trains and reasonable fares to pay. The current franchise comes

:18:11.:18:13.

to an end in 18 months. Arriva Trains is one

:18:14.:18:15.

of the companies bidding for the new one and replacing

:18:16.:18:18.

rolling stock takes time. There may be some way to go before

:18:19.:18:21.

there's light at the end More on this story in

:18:22.:18:24.

Week In Week Out tonight at 10:40 It's a sight to be seen -

:18:25.:18:29.

dolphins and porpoises Tonight a leading conservationist

:18:30.:18:38.

has accused the Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales

:18:39.:18:41.

of "failing miserably" to protect harbour porpoises off the coast

:18:42.:18:43.

of Pembrokeshire and says not enough's being done

:18:44.:18:45.

to protect the mammals. These waters off Pembrokeshire hold

:18:46.:18:47.

the richest variety of sea life Wales has to offer,

:18:48.:18:54.

from birds and seals to basking On this ferry, Sea Trust volunteers

:18:55.:18:57.

:18:58.:19:12.

some people travel for hours to this point near Fishguard

:19:13.:19:15.

to try to caps a glimpse of these Harbour porpoises are protected

:19:16.:19:18.

in law but they're making this area of sea a special area

:19:19.:19:24.

of conservation. Those involved in marine activities

:19:25.:19:34.

could have to show that they're For almost 20 years,

:19:35.:19:37.

the Sea Trust has been calling for the creation of a special zone

:19:38.:19:42.

to protect the species. Natural Resources Wales agrees

:19:43.:19:45.

and has recommended three special areas of conservation

:19:46.:19:48.

for harbour porpoises. One off Anglesey, another

:19:49.:19:51.

in the Bristol Channel and another covering the whole of Cardigan Bay

:19:52.:19:58.

on the Pembrokeshire coast. The final decision is down

:19:59.:20:00.

to ministers in Cardiff and London, but the apparent lack

:20:01.:20:03.

of action is frustrating. If we don't do it, then our children

:20:04.:20:05.

will hate us, our children's children and generations,

:20:06.:20:20.

will ask why it took 20 Plans to harness tidal energy

the area will protect the creatures We're already seeing decreased

:20:32.:20:34.

numbers of porpoise in some areas and we know they are seriously

:20:35.:20:38.

affected by pollutants so although they are fine

:20:39.:20:40.

at the moment, the risk is that It's been a long time coming,

:20:41.:20:43.

but tonight, the Welsh Government says a final decision

:20:44.:20:47.

is expected next month. Staying in Pembrokeshire,
