Welsh quango chief quits

THE chairman of the Welsh Development Agency yesterday resigned in the run-up to its reorganisation under the Government's devolution plans. Mr David Rowe-Beddoe said he would step down before his current contract expires next June.

But he also confirmed that he would apply to be chairman of the new expanded WDA when the post - the key public job in Wales - was advertised and determined by open competition under the new Welsh assembly.
