Good evening.

0:00:140:00:17

The new Wales Bill will give greater clarity over the Assembly's powers.

0:00:170:00:20

That's according to a minister in the UK Governments Wales office.

0:00:200:00:23

Guto Bebb was speaking on BBC Sunday Politics Wales.

0:00:230:00:27

The bill - which will change how the Welsh Assembly makes laws -

0:00:270:00:30

has been widely criticised.

0:00:300:00:31

Here's our political correspondent, Arwyn Jones.

0:00:310:00:34

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

0:00:340:00:37

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

0:00:370:00:41

It would give the Assembly new powers over energy projects such

0:00:410:00:45

as fracking, deciding how taxis should be licensed

0:00:450:00:47

and what the speed limit should be on Welsh roads.

0:00:470:00:51

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

0:00:510:00:54

from Cardiff Bay to Whitehall.

0:00:540:00:57

That was denied this morning by one of the men pushing

0:00:570:01:00

the legislation through.

0:01:000:01:02

We are building upon the 2011 referendum.

0:01:020:01:04

Now the 2011 referendum was very clear, that it gave the Welsh

0:01:040:01:07

Assembly powers in 20 subject areas.

0:01:070:01:09

We are going far beyond that.

0:01:090:01:10

But we do need that clarity.

0:01:100:01:12

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

0:01:120:01:15

which are a grey area.

0:01:150:01:17

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

0:01:170:01:20

ruled in favour of the Welsh government against UK ministers,

0:01:200:01:23

that the Assembly had the power to set the wages

0:01:230:01:25

of agricultural workers.

0:01:250:01:28

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

0:01:280:01:31

back in Westminster.

0:01:310:01:33

That judgment definitely clarified the Assembly's lawmaking powers,

0:01:330:01:36

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

0:01:360:01:41

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

0:01:410:01:45

government and the Assembly thought they had.

0:01:450:01:48

Tomorrow, the House of Lords will examine the bill.

0:01:480:01:51

It could be in for a rough ride.

0:01:510:01:53

The man who led the Yes for Wales campaign in 1979,

0:01:530:01:56

Lord Alistair Morgan, said it would have been better

0:01:560:02:00

for Wales if the Wales Bill had never happened.

0:02:000:02:05

North Wales Police are trying to find a convicted rapist,

0:02:050:02:08

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

0:02:080:02:10

63-year-old Richard Pen-treath - also known as Hilary Clifford Thomas

0:02:100:02:15

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

0:02:150:02:17

- is wanted on suspicion of causing arson with intent to

0:02:170:02:20

endanger life on Thursday.

0:02:200:02:21

On Monday, he was found guilty of historical rape

0:02:210:02:23

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

0:02:230:02:25

The potential dangers of e-cigarettes are being

0:02:250:02:27

highlighted by leading surgeons.

0:02:270:02:29

The warning comes after a number of people were badly injured

0:02:290:02:32

when the devices exploded in their pockets.

0:02:320:02:33

Burns specialists at Morriston Hospital, Swansea have

0:02:330:02:37

treated five men for serious injuries this year.

0:02:370:02:40

Trading Standards are urging people not to buy cheap products.

0:02:400:02:46

Wales Manager - Chris Coleman - says he's confident his side can

0:02:460:02:49

recover from their draw against Georgia.

0:02:490:02:52

The result - against opponents ranked 137th in the world -

0:02:520:02:56

was a blow to hopes of qualifying for the World Cup.

0:02:560:02:58

Tomos Dafydd reports.

0:02:580:03:00

It was the first real setback of this campaign.

0:03:000:03:04

Wales were overwhelming favourites to win, but the fans

0:03:040:03:06

left frustrated.

0:03:060:03:08

What a load of rubbish.

0:03:080:03:10

Absolutely terrible.

0:03:100:03:12

They looked tired.

0:03:120:03:13

Second half was really poor.

0:03:130:03:15

First half, they were really good.

0:03:150:03:17

Georgia were very good at passing.

0:03:170:03:19

Wales started brightly.

0:03:190:03:21

Gareth Bale jumping higher than anyone else

0:03:210:03:23

for the opening goal.

0:03:230:03:25

But the home side failed to add to that lead,

0:03:250:03:27

while Georgia grew into the game.

0:03:270:03:30

The second half and the team ranked 137th in the world equalised.

0:03:300:03:35

Unmarked, Tornike Okriashvili took full advantage.

0:03:350:03:39

Wales unravelled with goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey called

0:03:390:03:42

into action several times.

0:03:420:03:46

While Gareth Bale came close with this one,

0:03:460:03:48

Georgia squandered several chances.

0:03:480:03:52

The away side were made to look half decent.

0:03:520:03:55

Wales were living dangerously.

0:03:550:03:59

I think the team have obviously shown us a lot of respect.

0:03:590:04:02

We're obviously a different team they were playing against us

0:04:020:04:05

a couple of years ago.

0:04:050:04:06

But it is up to us to deal with that.

0:04:060:04:16

If we want to what qualify for the tournament, then that is

0:04:160:04:19

what we have to come up with.

0:04:190:04:21

It is disappointing.

0:04:210:04:21

We wanted to win the game but it is certainly not the end

0:04:210:04:25

of the world.

0:04:250:04:26

There's plenty of points to play for in this group.

0:04:260:04:30

And regardless of tonight, you know there are more games ahead.

0:04:300:04:33

It could have been worse for Wales.

0:04:330:04:35

The manager Chris Coleman conceded that his side could

0:04:350:04:37

have lost the match.

0:04:370:04:38

He also said that tonight's result means there's more pressure to beat

0:04:380:04:41

Serbia here next month.

0:04:410:04:42

Tomos Dafyyd, BBC Wales Today.

0:04:420:04:43

Let's take a look at what the weather has in store now.

0:04:430:04:46

Turning cold overnight, especially in rural areas,and

0:04:460:04:48

we could see some frost.

0:04:480:04:49

Tomorrow, a chilly start, then generally dry with widespread

0:04:490:04:51

sunshine, but perhaps the odd shower in the afternoon.

0:04:510:04:53

Highs of 13 Celsius.

0:04:530:04:54

And that's it from the Sunday night team here on BBC Wales today.

0:04:540:04:57

We'll be back in Breakfast with updates from around

0:04:570:04:59

6.25am tomorrow morning.

0:04:590:05:00

Thanks for watching.

0:05:000:05:01
