Declaration for Welsh Democracy

Within the next few weeks the All Wales Convention, chaired by Sir Emyr Jones-Parry, will publish its report on primary law making powers for the National Assembly. It is evident from much of the evidence presented to the Convention that there is a strong desire for more legislative powers and great dissatisfaction with the present system. Whatever the conclusion of the Convention’s report it is of paramount importance to show that there is widespread support across the country for creating a proper parliament in Wales. That is why Tomorrow’s Wales have published the Declaration for Welsh Democracy that calls for a system of government which is effective, efficient, transparent and participatory.

More than 2,000 people have already signed the declaration but we need thousands more by the time the Convention report is published in November. We appeal to the branch members to collect as many signatures as possible. If each member collected 10 names that would be an excellent start. You can find the Declaration on Tomorrow’s Wales’ website: . You can either sign up on the website or download a hard copy.

All who believe in democracy, devolution and a sustainable future for Wales - sign!
