To keep our access to the single market, Carwyn Jones says
we should be prepared to do something similar.
I know that many people are not happy with the
current system of freedom of movement so that can't stay exactly
as it is, I think that's right to say.
What I've suggested is people should have freedom
The First Minister visited a sixth form college this morning and wants
to learn from Norway's government to find out whether a soft
Brexit which keeps the UK in the single market is possible.

If the First Minister wishes to go to Oslo
and look at what Norway is doing, yes, what we need to be crafting
out here is a British relationship with Europe.
We are in uncharted territory says Carwyn Jones and no country

including Norway, provides a ready-made blueprint to describe

Should Wales be given control over immigration?
That's the call tonight from a group of MPs who say devolving some
powers over the system, such as visas and migration quotas,
The UK Government says any changes would lead to complications.
Our political reporter Carl Roberts has the story.
Immigration is never far from the headlines.
Today's debate - who should set the rules for people wanting to
A report from a group of MPs and peers
says the Welsh Government should have a say and is calling on the
UK Government to seriously consider devolving a degree of control over
immigration policy powers to the nations and regions to help
It also wants an independent commission to explore
Our report recommends an independent commission
to explore how a devolved, regionally-led system
might give people a greater sense of democratic
control over immigration and change in their area.
Shaping immigration criteria to address national or regional
needs will instil greater confidence that the system works for your area
The report also suggests looking at the system in place in Canada,
were all ten provincial governments are allowed to set specific
requirements for immigrants and have some control over visas.
Some question whether this kind of system would work here in Wales.
In some ways it would make sense because education and housing
are already devolved issues but in other ways it may complicate
things because asylum and immigration are obviously
not devolved and asylum seekers are frequently rooted around
the UK on a no-choice basis so they would have to look
at that policy again if they want to devolve these issues.
Others say immigration rules tailored to the needs of Wales
Wales' economic profile is different to the rest of the UK.
We have a larger dependency on manufacturing and
we're the only country in the UK that is a net
exporter of goods, so having our own ability to issue work visas and work
permits would give us an increased advantage, I think, in terms of
boosting our economy and helping support the NHS as well.
The Welsh Government has welcomed the MPs report and says it
would like to see the needs of Wales represented in
any future UK Government immigration policy but the UK Government isn't
so keen and says having different immigration policies
for different parts of the UK would complicated the system.

It is all change tomorrow. In the meantime blue sky and sunshine for
most of Wales today. Gorgeous in Snowdonia, perfect walking weather
that it won't be as nice as this tomorrow. Temperatures down to frost

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

In Wales tomorrow, the weather going downhill. Cloudy with outbreaks of
heavy rain lightly. Temperatures slowly rising, up to 11 Celsius on
Anglesey. Tomorrow evening, further rain that it will eventually

break allowing a little sunshine. Temperatures on the mild side. It is
a similar story on Sunday. Cloudy and dry. Rain on Monday, windy as

rain will return tomorrow. See you soon.
