Welcome to Wales Today.
Our top stories...
As the Prime Minister sets out her vision for Brexit,
what will it mean for Wales?
And Assembly Members have tonight voted to approve the UK
Government's Wales Bill, meaning some new powers will be
devolved to Cardiff Bay.
"A Brexit that works for the whole of the United Kingdom
outside the single market."
That's the promise from Prime Minister Theresa May
as she ended months of speculation.
She also said the Welsh government would be fully
engaged in the process.
The First Minister, Carwyn Jones, responded to her speech by saying
she was heading in the wrong direction for the good
of the economy.
Here's our Poltiical Editor, Nick Servini.
The wheels are slowly turning on what many considered
to be a hard Brexit.
And a hard Brexit is, appropriately, what the boss and most of the staff
are after at this steel coating plant in Newport.
The European single market aims to make trade easier by allowing
the free movement of goods, services and people.
A departure in order to control immigration could open
the door to trade tariffs.
Despite that, there's confidence here that new deals can be done
outside of the single market.
We buy a lot of material from the EU, and we export to the EU.
So we've got to work out a deal that's good for both sides.
A different industry, and a different view.
It's not a hard, but a softer approach to Brexit, which this
yoghurt maker on Anglesey wants.
The firm exports between 30-50% of its goods to the EU,
and the owner feels businesses like his are better off inside.
The simplicity of just being able to sell products into Europe
without being stopped at the borders and checked over and redoing
all the paperwork.
Theresa May says staying in the single market would not mean
leaving the EU at all.
And she had this message for the devolved administrations.
Part of that would mean working very carefully to ensure that as powers
are repatriated from Brussels back to Britain, the right powers
are returned to Westminster and the right powers are passed
to the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales
and Northern Ireland.
Carwyn Jones said he'd continue to push for full and unfettered
access to the single market, despite today's announcement.
And he called for the Assembly to have a say.
We've got to get a deal that's going to last.
It has to be agreed as widely as possible.
Why on earth would Whitehall take decisions on agriculture
in Wales and Scotland that are the responsibility of the
Welsh and Scottish Governments?
Watch exports are particularly reliant on markets
in the EU for trade.
So how has the departure from the single market gone
down in another market, Pontypool?
An area that, like the rest of Wales, voted to leave.
It's far right.
This country used to be Great Britain and one time.
Now it's just a place for immigrants.
I think for the normal ordinary people, it is not the right thing.
Well, I just think it would be, going forward with younger people,
it just would be very detrimental.
Theresa May's argument is that people voted to leave including
in places like this, Pontypool, with their eyes wide open.
In other words, they did so knowing full well that leaving the single
market would form part of the deal.
Of course, what she's got to do now for everyone,
and not just those who voted to leave, is to try to do that
without trade being affected.
Businesses in particular wanted clarity and so after seven months
of speculation and long periods of silence from ministers,
an early glimpse of what Brexit would look like.
Assembly members have tonight backed the UK
government's Wales Bill, by 38 votes to 17.
It will move responsibility for several areas from London
to Cardiff for the first time, giving Welsh ministers power
over energy, transport, teacher's pay and some control
of income tax.
But the leader of the Welsh Conservatives says devolution
will eventually need another rethink as powers come back from Brussels.
20 years ago, Tony Blair swept to power, promising devolution.
Since then, the extent of the Assembly's power
has been argued over and tinkered with repeatedly.
Tonight the latest set of changes was approved by AMs.
And before it's even become law, talk has already
turned to what's next.
Some powers over energy, more power over tax.
For some, the Wales Bill has a pick and mix feel that's left
Yes, there are some areas that are unsatisfactory,
and there are areas that are yet to be addressed that will need to be
addressed in the future.
But on balance we took the decision to support the LCM this afternoon,
although that decision hasn't been easy.
The First Minister is eyeing further powers, including
the tax on plane tickets - air passenger duty.
Devolving it would allow the Welsh Government to make flights
from Cardiff cheaper than those in England.
The Welsh Tory leader, too, would like that duty devolved.
But for now he thinks this bill strikes the right balance.
I'm particularly pleased to say that income tax will be coming to this
institution to make sure that we do have greater accountability
in the way the money is spent in this institution
and by the government.
Mr Davis also said that Brexit means devolution will eventually
need another rethink.
And there was a nod to that in the Prime Minister's big Brexit
speech in London earlier.
Some Labour AMs are backing this bill to protect powers
they already have, like over agriculture with EU negotiations
due to start soon.
Plaid Cymru decided to oppose, saying this bill takes power away
from Cardiff Bay and hoards it in Westminster.
We welcome those aspects of the bill which enabled the future
devolution of income tax, control of our own elections
and the provisions over energy and fracking.
But let there be no doubt.
We in Plaid Cymru want to go much, much further
than what is on offer here.
The only reason that we are going to oppose this
is because of the provision to remove the requirement
for the referendum to trigger income tax raising powers,
which we think is a breach of faith with the Welsh people.
It's not the end of the road for the Wales Bill.
Parliament needs to sign off on it.
And after that, few expect this to be the end
of the road for devolution.
Planned changes to the way women in Wales are screened for cervical
cancer could help detect an extra 20 cancers a year, according
to Public Health Wales.
In future, instead of studying cervical cells for any changes,
cells will be screened for the main cause of cervical cancer,
the HPV virus.
A pilot programme will start in April.
Rugby, and Sam Warburton is no longer Wales captain.
It's been confirmed Alun Wyn Jones will take over.
Interim Head Coach Rob Howley says he wants Warburton
to concentrate on his own game.
Seven uncapped players are included in the 36 man squad
for the Six Nations.
Let's see what the weather has in store.
Here's Derek Brockway.
Parts of mid Wales saw a little sunshine today,
but for most of us it's been grey and dreary.
This picture was taken by one of our Weather Watchers in Monmouthshire.
It will change tonight.
Misty in places, some hill fog.
The odd spot of light rain and drizzle about.
Otherwise a dry night.
Too much cloud for any frost, with the lowest
temperature of seven Celsius.
For tomorrow, a similar story.
Misty and places in the morning with plenty of cloud.
Again, the odd spot of light rain or drizzle, but no more than that.
Maybe, if we're lucky, a little bit of brightness
and sunshine in Bangor.
Across the rest of the UK, mixed fortunes.
Many places right and cloudy with mist and the odd spot or drizzle.
Most of the mainly far north and north-west of Scotland.
The best of the sunshine in south-east England.
It will be chilly in the south-east - only four Celsius in Norwich.
Milder in the north and west - 11 in Inverness.
In Wales tomorrow afternoon, most places will be cloudy and dry.
Some mist in Powys.
A few places may brighten up with temperature similar
to today, up to ten Celsius on the north coast.
A chilly six in Monmouth and Brecon.
Tomorrow night again will have some mist.
The odd spot of drizzle.
Otherwise dry and fairly cloudy, and a frost free night.
Into Thursday, mist will slowly lift.
The cance for a little sunshine in parts of the South and West.
The odd light shower in Monmouthshire.
Otherwise dry with light winds.
A similar story for Friday, cloudy and mostly dry.
Seven degree in Aberystwyth.
This will change over the weekend with high pressure keeping things
mostly dry unsettled - and hopefully with
a little sunshine.
That's Wales Today.
Thank you for watching.
From all of us on the programme, goodnight.
