All Wales Convention in Pembrokeshire

Sir Emyr Jones Parry, Chair of the All Wales Convention will be in Pembrokeshire on Friday the 26 of September to promote the Convention’s work.

Sir Emyr will be addressing the Welsh Local Government Association Council meeting in Haverfordwest, explaining the role of Convention and on how the WLGA can engage with the process.

Sir Emyr will also be attending a community and voluntary sector event at Pembrokeshire Collage that evening which has been jointly organised by Joan Asby, chief officer of PLANED (Pembrokeshire Local Action Network for Enterprise and Development) and Sue Leonard Chief Officer of PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services ). Joan, of Narberth is a member of the All Wales Convention’s Executive Committee.

Joan Asby said:

The meeting is about bringing local people together to give them an opportunity to get to grips with the work of the Convention. The community and voluntary sectors play an important role in Pembrokeshire and it’s important that we engage with the All Wales Convention to make sure that our voice is heard.

The All Wales Convention has been set up to will find out what the Welsh public thinks about the National Assembly getting further law-making powers. The Convention wants the widest possible cross-section of people to get involved in a debate about the Assembly’s powers now, how they currently work, and about the potential case for giving the Assembly full law-making powers.
