§ 15. Mr. Stephen O'Brien
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had recently with the First Secretary on Welsh-English cross-border issues; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
I meet the First Secretary regularly to discuss a range of issues including this one.
Where decisions affect communities on the English/ Welsh border, the Assembly engages in discussions with the lead Whitehall department. I would become involved only if I were asked to intervene to help resolve a difficulty.
