Switzerland is known for chocolate, cheese, taxation, and banking

In light of the Icelandic issue, Nick Bourne AM recalls a question from a recent meeting of the Assembly Finance Committee that was raised by Labour AM Huw Lewis.

"Astoundingly, though money tends to be drawn down from Whitehall, neither the minister nor his officials did not know in response to questions from Huw Lewis where WAG banked nor how much was held in the accounts - reassuring isn’t it?"
This has unexpectedly prompted Rhodri Morgan to take action, and could it be the reason why he's taken a trip to Switzerland days before an All-Wales economic summit meeting? After all, he doesn't seem to be there for the joyous singing of hymns.

What's that pin number again?

You're right he didn't look happy while singing and seemed to struggle with the words. I have the same expression on my face at the cashpoint when trying to remember my pin.

With the best will in the world, is Huw Lewis the only AM not in the cabinet who does any work? He is the only one who ever asks the questions that seem to matter. It is all very well for Nick Bourne to congratulate him on his scrutiny, but shouldn't his party be doing some of this stuff?
