Wales promised new devolved powers

April 5, 2014

Wales has been promised new powers by the Lib Dem leader & Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg.

Youth justice, big energy and policing will be among the newly granted powers to the Cardiff based assembly.

It could be argued that Cymru was originally hesitant of devolved power, with the Yes side only collecting a very narrow victory in the 1997 referendum, it is safe to say now however that the Welsh people have certainly see the benefits of having their own assembly.

Polling last year showed that eight out of ten Welshmen (and women!) thought that the Welsh Assembly acted in the best interests of the Welsh and most importantly a majority of people thought that the Welsh Assembly had given Wales a stronger voice in the UK than they ever had before.

This proves what devolution can do for places like Yorkshire, allowing us to have a true and lasting say on our county’s density. If you’re skeptical of a Yorkshire assembly, use Wales as an example, hesitant and now in love.
