First minister's questions

The newly appointed first minister Carwyn Jones AM faced questions from assembly members for the first time on 12 January 2009.

In the first question to the new first minister, the Liberal Democrats AM Jenny Randerson called on the first minister to end what she called "the scandalous spending on the north-south air link".

She raised concerns that the Assembly was subsidising a mode of transport that was damaging to the environment.

The Plaid Cymru AM, Leanne Wood called on the first minister to introduce the boiler scrappage scheme that was recently introduced in England.

In response, the first minister said that a decision will be made once it is clear whether there will be any additional money for Wales as a result of the scheme.

During the session the first minister also answer questions on ambulance response times, salt supplies to local authorities and organ donation.

Mr Jones was elected as the new leader of the Labour party in Wales and subsequently appointed to be first minister on the 9 December 2009 following the resignation of his predecessor Rhodri Morgan AM.
