[First Minister of Wales:] Source: LYBIO.net
Good evening everybody, I am speaking to you this evening at an awful time for everyone. I want to talk about Carl and his family.
We were all very shocked by what happened this week. There is great hurt, anger and bewilderment.
Carl was my friend.
In all the years that I knew him, I never had a cross word with him. Never argued with him for 14 years we worked together. He was a great Chief Whip and a Minister who served his country with distinction.
I’m sure we can all agree it is diffictult to conceive of what Bernie and the family must be going through at the moment.

There are a lot of inaccuracies in the press and many of you will have questions to ask about what happened last week. Everybody is grieving and it is not appropriate for me to get into the precise detail. These are matters for the future – things that will need to be properly disclosed through what should be a Coroner’s Inquest.
As there will in all probability be an inquest, I and my team will of course be cooperating fully with any questions that are raised there.
The family deserve to have their questions answered and if that isn’t possible through the Inquest then I will endeavour to make sure that happens through other means.
There is a legal process to go through, I’m obviously acting within that. But I welcome any scrutiny of my actions in the future and it is appropriate for that to be done independently.
I properly did all that I could to make sure that everything was being done by the book. I had no alternative but to take the action that I did and I hope that people will understand that.
But Carl was a true force of nature – he drove through more legislation than any other Minister, not just through force of argument, but through shear force of personality and persuasion.
Wales has lost a person of great warmth, ability and charisma. These are the darkest days that any of us can remember in this institution but they are darkest of all for the family, and we must respect their right to grieve in peace at this time.
