Clwyd West AM Darren Millar had asked for a report on UFO sightings over Cardiff Airport since it’s acquisition by the government.
In three questions Mr Millar asked the economy minister Edwina Hart if she’d make a statement “on how many reports of unidentified flying objects there have been at Cardiff Airport since its acquisition by the Welsh Government”.
He also asked what “discussions has the Welsh Government had with the Ministry of Defence regarding sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales in each of the past five years”.
He added: “What consideration has the Welsh Government given to the funding of research into sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales?”
The Welsh Government replied: “jang vIDa je due luq. ‘ach ghotvam’e’ QI’yaH-devolved qaS.”
It is understood to mean: “The minister will reply in due course.
“However this is a non-devolved matter.”
A fuller answer will be provided to Mr Millar by July 15.
But an Assembly source said: “The only extra-terrestrial life seen near Cardiff recently seems to be Darren Millar.
“Perhaps instead of spending time and wasting Government resources asking questions about UFOs he should be fighting for the very real concerns of his constituents.”
