Ahead of the devolution of stamp duty there's been a call

:00:11.:00:14.

for urgent clarification over what it will mean for more

:00:15.:00:17.

than a thousand properties which have land in both

:00:18.:00:19.

There are concerns buyers may have to make make

:00:20.:00:23.

Next year, stamp duty will be replaced in Wales by the land

:00:24.:00:31.

But what does that mean for properties like this one

:00:32.:00:36.

near Llanymynech with land in Powys and Shropshire?

:00:37.:00:40.

According to the map I'm using I am standing right on the

:00:41.:00:43.

border here and legislation dictates that, as of April next year, anyone

:00:44.:00:47.

wanting to buy this property or one like it would have to make two

:00:48.:00:52.

They will have to pay the new land transaction tax based on

:00:53.:00:58.

the value of the land in Wales, and they would have to pay

:00:59.:01:00.

stamp duty on the part of the property in England.

:01:01.:01:04.

We will have to produce seperate valuations for each of those pieces

:01:05.:01:09.

It is an extra additional cost for somebody that is selling.

:01:10.:01:18.

The Assembly's finance committee has found that are more

:01:19.:01:21.

than 1,000 properties straddling the border.

:01:22.:01:25.

That might sound little curious because there is plenty of

:01:26.:01:30.

evidence of where the border is, but the Land Registry that keeps a copy

:01:31.:01:34.

of every land transaction in Wales and England has not needed to plot

:01:35.:01:38.

Therefore, its digital maps don't include the border.

:01:39.:01:42.

There is one year and two months left to sort this out.

:01:43.:01:45.

Not only sort it out, have the IT stress tested and in place

:01:46.:01:49.

If it's not, it is going to be a right mess.

:01:50.:01:55.

The Welsh Government says it is working with

:01:56.:01:56.

the Land Registry to identify all the properties which could be

:01:57.:01:59.

affected and work is underway to make sure the border

:02:00.:02:02.

The Land Registry told us this is a complex issue but it is

:02:03.:02:08.

confident an appropriate resolution will be found.

:02:09.:02:12.

More on that story on tomorrow morning's Sunday Politics,

:02:13.:02:14.

Hundreds of people in Wales have joined protests against the incoming

:02:15.:02:22.

Events in Cardiff and Bangor mirrored many staged

:02:23.:02:28.

across the world with much of the focus on highlighting

:02:29.:02:30.

The Church in Wales' first woman bishop has been consecrated

:02:31.:02:36.

at a ceremony in Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff.

:02:37.:02:39.

Canon Joanna Penberthy was elected Bishop of St Davids by

:02:40.:02:43.

The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan described

:02:44.:02:47.

I have done nine consecrations to date, all the presents bishops

:02:48.:02:55.

The cathedral today simply errupted in greeting her.

:02:56.:03:02.

That says it all because it really was an importantmoment.

:03:03.:03:06.

There was a big win for Swansea City in the Premier League.

:03:07.:03:14.

They beat title-chasing Liverpool at Anfield and are now out

:03:15.:03:16.

What time to claim your first ever league win

:03:17.:03:21.

Paul Clement, a first win in his new job.

:03:22.:03:26.

After a first half which saw Swansea hold Liverpool at bay, the second

:03:27.:03:30.

Fernando Llorente in the right place to poke the ball home

:03:31.:03:36.

and give the Swansea a surprise lead.

:03:37.:03:38.

It was soon even better, a wonderful flowing move ended with

:03:39.:03:42.

Llorente towering above the defence to double the Swans advantage.

:03:43.:03:46.

There was barely time to celebrate before Liverpool hit back,

:03:47.:03:49.

Roberto Firminio showing he is no slouch in the air either.

:03:50.:03:54.

Liverpool pressure told with 20 minutes to go

:03:55.:03:56.

as Firminio's classy finish brought the scores level.

:03:57.:04:00.

With Liverpool looking the most likely winners,

:04:01.:04:04.

player, Gylfi Sigurdsson, showed composure to put

:04:05.:04:07.

There were anxious moments before the end but the Swans hung on.

:04:08.:04:14.

A memorable win in what, so far, has been a season to forget.

:04:15.:04:20.

Elsewhere today, in the Championship Cardiff City claimed

:04:21.:04:22.

In League Two, it was goal-less between Barnet and Newport County.

:04:23.:04:28.

And in the National League Wrexham drew 1-1 at neighbours Chester.

:04:29.:04:32.

Onto rugby, and the Cardiff Blues are through to the Challenge Cup

:04:33.:04:35.

knock-out stages after beating Bristol.

:04:36.:04:38.

However, the Dragons are out after losing at Brive.

:04:39.:04:41.

The Ospreys, who are already through, have just

:04:42.:04:44.

And in the Champions Cup the Scarlets lost at Sale.

:04:45.:04:50.

and where clear spells develop, patchy frost will form.

:04:51.:04:55.

It's chilly again tomorrow but with many sunny spells,

:04:56.:04:57.

But that's Wales Today, enjoy your evening, goodbye.

:04:58.:05:12.

Good evening. It does not get warmer. If you check the UK as a

:05:13.:05:19.

whole, it has been one of the coldest days so
