Radio silence at Wales Office

They have a funny old news sense in the Wales Office, the Whitehall department that represents Welsh interests but has no executive functions.

A few weeks ago they were trying to persuade us that a Minister climbing Snowdon was a story - would we like to interview him?

Perhaps not. How about his incredibly newsworthy visit to a salt factory on Anglesey? Probably not worth holding the front page for.

Then there was his absorbing visit to Llangollen. I think something else may have hit the headlines that day.

Today, with the Prime Minister answering questions about his decision not to call an election, we thought we'd like to speak to a Minister.

We rang the Wales Office. You can guess the reply.
