The Commission on Devolution in Wales has announced its final set of public events, meeting its commitment to visit every Local Authority in Wales to hear the public’s views.
The Commission will hold a range of events in South East and North Wales during May to hear the views of the public on whether the Welsh Government should have tax varying and borrowing powers. These events include coffee mornings, drop in sessions, public evidence meetings and evening panel discussions. Further details of May’s events can be found at http://commissionondevolutioninwales.independent.gov.uk/events.
Announcing the final set of events, Chair Paul Silk said: “We have been clear from the outset that we wanted to provide people across Wales with every opportunity to engage with us. By the end of May we will have visited every local authority area in Wales, something which has been important to us as a Commission.
“This is the public’s chance to get involved and play their part on a subject which will affect everyone’s lives in communities across Wales. When we come to report later this year, we want to be sure that our recommendations have wide support and are in the interests of Wales. Hearing the public’s views is a key part in us achieving that and I would urge everyone to come along and find out more about our work.”
