The First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon has described The Co-operation Agreement between Welsh Labour and Plaid Cymru in the Senedd as "grown up, collaborative politics."


The SNP leader compared the Agreement in the Senedd to her party's current power-sharing agreement with the Scottish Green Party at Holyrood.


Ms Sturgeon said: "Following the SNP Scottish Government/ Scottish Green

Co-operation Agreement in Scotland, interesting to see the emergence of grown up, collaborative politics in Wales too, with this proposed deal between Plaid Cymru and Welsh Labour."


However, not everyone has welcomed the Agreement between Welsh Labour and Plaid Cymru. Speaking to BBC Wales , a Welsh Conservatives spokesperson said that the deal is "remarkable for its absence of solutions to fix the NHS - currently experiencing its worst performance on record - or improve the economy in Wales".
