A minister in the UK Government has defended plans to change how

:00:00.:00:20.

The Wales Bill has been widely criticised.

:00:21.:00:23.

But Wales Office Minister, Guto Bebb says it will give far

:00:24.:00:26.

greater clarity over what the Assembly's able to do.

:00:27.:00:29.

Here's our political correspondent, Arwyn Jones.

:00:30.:00:33.

The aim of the Wales Bill is to clear up who is responsible

:00:34.:00:37.

for making laws in which areas, the Welsh Assembly or Westminster.

:00:38.:00:40.

It would give the Assembly new powers over energy projects such

:00:41.:00:43.

as fracking, deciding how taxis should be licensed

:00:44.:00:47.

and what the speed limit should be on Welsh roads.

:00:48.:00:50.

But critics, including many AMs, say it takes back powers

:00:51.:00:53.

That was denied this morning by one of the men pushing

:00:54.:00:58.

We are building upon the 2011 referendum.

:00:59.:01:04.

Now the 2011 referendum made it very clear that it gave the Welsh

:01:05.:01:07.

And the people of Wales are not well served by having decisions

:01:08.:01:14.

Two years ago, the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court,

:01:15.:01:20.

ruled in favour of the Welsh government against UK ministers,

:01:21.:01:27.

that the Assembly had the power to set the wages

:01:28.:01:29.

But the concern is that the new Wales Bill would put such powers

:01:30.:01:33.

That judgment definitely clarified the Assembly's lawmaking powers,

:01:34.:01:39.

but what this bill has done is try to undo those Supreme Court

:01:40.:01:44.

decisions and actually take back some of the powers that the Welsh

:01:45.:01:47.

government and the Assembly thought they had.

:01:48.:01:49.

Tomorrow, the House of Lords will examine the bill.

:01:50.:01:56.

The man led the Yes for Wales campaign in 1979,

:01:57.:02:00.

Lord Alistair Morgan, said it would have been better

:02:01.:02:02.

for Wales if the Wales Bill had never happened.

:02:03.:02:05.

This is the fourth attempt to clarify the Welsh

:02:06.:02:07.

devolution settlement, each of the previous acts were said

:02:08.:02:09.

It seems unlikely this attempt will succeed

:02:10.:02:21.

North Wales Police are trying to find a convicted rapist,

:02:22.:02:25.

following a fire at an address in Prestatyn, in Denbighshire.

:02:26.:02:27.

63-year-old Richard Pentreath, also known as Hilary Clifford Thomas,

:02:28.:02:29.

is wanted on suspicion of causing arson with intent to

:02:30.:02:31.

On Monday, he was found guilty of historical rape

:02:32.:02:35.

offences in his absence, after he failed to attend court.

:02:36.:02:37.

Police say he has links to the London, Gloucester

:02:38.:02:39.

Leading surgeons are warning of the potential dangers

:02:40.:02:46.

of e-cigarettes, after treating patients who were badly

:02:47.:02:48.

injured when the devices exploded in their pockets.

:02:49.:02:51.

Doctors at Morriston Hospital's Burns and Plastic Surgery Unit

:02:52.:02:54.

in Swansea have treated five men for serious burns this year.

:02:55.:02:57.

Trading standards officers have urged people not

:02:58.:03:00.

Ukip MEP, Nathan Gill says he doesn't know if he'll still be

:03:01.:03:07.

a member of the party in a year's time.

:03:08.:03:09.

Mr Gill - who's also an independent AM for North Wales -

:03:10.:03:12.

says he's embarrassed by the infighting within the party.

:03:13.:03:15.

It comes after Ukip's new leader stood down

:03:16.:03:18.

Wales' footballers - who're aiming to reach their first

:03:19.:03:25.

World Cup for nearly six decades - are taking on Georgia tonight.

:03:26.:03:29.

Live to the Cardiff City Stadium - and Tomos Dafydd.

:03:30.:03:37.

Wales are overwhelming favourites - and ranked more than a hundred

:03:38.:03:39.

But Wales record against Georgia is not good -

:03:40.:03:46.

But so far, this game is going Wales' way.

:03:47.:04:14.

I don't think it is a must when, but we should do it. Three points in the

:04:15.:04:21.

bag today would do it. I reckon the Boyle 's whirlwind. Chris Coleman

:04:22.:04:29.

played inside but lost 5-0 to Georgia in the 19 days. Those dark

:04:30.:04:35.

days of distant memory now. So could this generation 62 previous

:04:36.:04:39.

generations altered? Wales were on top in the early stages. This cross

:04:40.:04:45.

just beyond Gareth Bale. He warned that his side will have to be

:04:46.:04:49.

patient against the stubborn Georgia defence. But they did not have to

:04:50.:04:54.

wait too long for the opening goal. Gareth Bale jumped higher than

:04:55.:04:59.

anyone else. One up after ten minutes. Wales dominated and tested

:05:00.:05:06.

the Georgian defence. George -- Gareth Bale was a threat throughout

:05:07.:05:14.

the first half. One goal margin is never comfortable and Georgia came

:05:15.:05:18.

close. This free kick thankfully just over the bar. At the break,

:05:19.:05:24.

wheels 1-0. Eight minutes into the second half and it remains Wales-

:05:25.:05:31.

one. That means Gareth Bale says weathered three goals of Ian Rush s'

:05:32.:05:38.

record. All the action and reaction at 10:20pm tonight.

:05:39.:05:43.

Rugby - and in the Pro 12, the Scarlets recovered

:05:44.:05:46.

from a 13-point deficit to claim a bonus-point win against

:05:47.:05:48.

I'll be back with you with our next bulletin after the ten o'clock news.
