Further Silk Commission events confirmed

Published 2 April 2012

The Commission on Devolution in Wales has confirmed a series of further events for South and West Wales in April to hear the public’s views on whether the Welsh Government should have tax varying and borrowing powers.

The Commission will hold a coffee morning drop in session in Cowbridge, a public evidence session in Bridgend and an evening public event in Carmarthen on 17 April.  The following day, the Commission will hold drop in sessions in Haverfordwest and Neath.  Full details can be found at

Paul Silk, Chair said:  “We have started going out and about across Wales to hear the views of people on these important but complex issues.  Today we have announced the next set of events planned for April covering South and West Wales and I hope as many people as possible come to find out more about our work and to have their say.

“Through these events, we are hearing a wide range of views and this will only help us when we come to report later this year.  We’ll shortly be announcing further events for May in other parts of Wales and I would encourage the public to tell us their views on Wales’s financial future.”
