The Welsh Peerage

Just heard on Radio 5 Live news that Peter Hain has been named in Parliament as the Government member who offered Peter Law a peerage if he did not stand last May. More later no doubt.

UPDATE BBC coverage here ,UTV here, ITV here, PA here.

As with so much in politics, I’m not alltogether sure that it matters if this is true or not. David Trimble commented on Sunday that Northern Ireland & Wales is probably Hain’s last Cabinet position, perhaps Plaid have just shifted the date of his Cabinet leaving party forward a few months.
