About the Convention

The public consultation period ended on the 21st August 2009 and the report was submitted to the Welsh Assembly Governement on November 18th 2009. We would like to thank everybody who contributed to the debate. The work of the All Wales Convention is now complete, but this website will remain as a record of our work.

The basic purpose of the Convention is to:

  • Increase understanding of how the National Assembly works at the moment;
  • Ask you what you think about the National Assembly for Wales having more law-making powers;
  • Report back to the Welsh Assembly Government at the end of the debate.

A more detailed list of the Convention's aims are available on our 'Objectives' page.
