First minister's questions

The party leaders united to express their sympathy with the family of April Jones during first ministers questions on 2 October 2012.

The five year old went missing on Monday 1 October 2012.

"I'm sure I speak for all members here when I say that our thoughts go out to the family of young April Jones from Machynlleth," said Leader of Plaid Cymru Leanne Wood AM.

"We hope that she's found safe and well quickly."

The first minister thanked Ms Wood for her comments, sharing the sentiment.

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Kirsty Williams AM mentioned the "very real trauma" for the people of Machynlleth.

"Let us hope that (the search) proves fruitful and the distress caused at the moment to her parents can be solved pretty quickly," said Leader of the Conservatives Andrew RT Davies AM.

He also wished to "spare a thought for absent colleagues".

Labour AM Keith Davies is in a stable condition in the University Hospital of Wales Cardiff.

Mr Jones also answered questions in relation to education, the economy and the health service.
