    One of the marks of a civilised society is how it treats the old, the vulnerable, the sick, and the frail. I was reminded of this a few weeks ago when I met with staff from Age Cymru Swansea Bay to hear more about their 'Make a Fuss' campaign which is aimed at helping those who get care at home, their families, and those who give care, to understand how to complain if needed. It's a campaign I'll be promoting.

    At the last election the Liberal Democrats' top priority was to give low and middle earners a £700 tax cut. And we've delivered. From this April, for the first time ever, nobody will pay income tax on the first £10,000 they earn.

    In Bridgend that means that 5,350 earners will no longer pay income tax at all, whilst 49,300 will have £700 more to spend each year than they did in 2010.

    I am often taken aback when I take a visit abroad and get a flavour of what many other nations are serving up as 'news'. We can count ourselves lucky that the BBC is an institution that we can all be proud of. Newsnight, in particular, is a programme that not only informs on a relatively consistent basis, but also presents its programmes in an interesting manner. However, I doubt you will find a single person who argues that either the BBC or Newsnight is perfect; of course they are not. There is always room for improvement and that is something the BBC must strive to achieve.

    Like the UK Parliament, the Welsh Assembly has a system whereby backbench members can bring forward their own legislation.

    Mr. Black has received representations from local people and businesses that the closure of junction 41 will discourage new business from coming to the town as well as harming existing businesses in the town.

    For a number of years now I have been working with groups concerned at the way their community has changed as a result of many family homes being converted into houses of multiple occupation.

    A House of Multiple Occupancy is one that is home to several tenants who rent separately from each other, often on a short term basis. These are typically used by students and young professionals and are cheaper to rent than an entire house. However, in some communities the majority of houses are now HMOs and this has had a drastic impact on the neighbourhood, as well as causing additional problems with parking and rubbish.
