Welsh politicians give formal evidence to All Wales Convention

The All Wales Convention will visit Newport’s Civic Centre on Thursday April 2nd as part of its remit to collect evidence as part of its public consultation on the debate on more powers for the National Assembly for Wales.

Amongst those registered to give evidence in Newport will be First Minister Rhodri Morgan AM, Deputy First Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones AM and Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Kirsty Williams AM. The evidence gathering session will take place in Committee Room 7, Newport Civic Centre, 9am-5pm.

The formal evidence gathering sessions, which are open to members of the public should they wish to observe, or give formal evidence, are supported by a number of other events including a wide range of public events across Wales, from shopping centre road shows to tea dances and panel style debates. The next question time style public event is being held at Cwmbran Stadium, on Wednesday April 1st, 6.30-8.30pm, followed by a discussion group event at Pontypridd Rugby Club on Thursday April 2nd, 6.30-8.30pm.

Sir Emyr Jones Parry, Chair of the All Wales Convention, said:

The All Wales Convention public consultation is just that, a chance for all people in Wales, whether political leaders or not, to make their views heard on the future options for devolution in Wales.

We welcome the large amount of contributions already made to date and look forward to hearing those in Newport and many more over the months to come as we prepare the final report to be delivered by the end of the year.
