Ministers expect Welsh assembly members to be paid pounds 37,000 per year, details given to a Welsh Labour MP have revealed.

In a written answer to Alan Williams, Ron Davies, the Secretary of State for Wales, said he expects members' salaries to cost pounds 2,226,000 per year - pounds 37,100 for each of 60 seats.

A review body will decide how much the members will be paid, but Mr Davies' figures give the first indication of his preference.
