Act now to ensure a successful referendum - Kirsty Williams

November 18, 2009 9:07 AM

Commenting on the publication of the Report of the All Wales Convention, Kirsty Williams, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats said:

"Welsh Liberal Democrats believe the Convention has done a good job, bringing the voices of people from across Wales into a debate all too often dominated by politicians. Credit is due to Sir Emyr and his colleagues for providing a thorough report, following months of consultation and research.

"The report itself provides a devastating critique of the existing, half-baked settlement, confirming my belief that a referendum will allow Wales to choose a better, proper settlement, fit for the purpose of truly devolved Welsh Government."

"The Welsh Liberal Democrats believe that the sooner a decision is taken to proceed with a referendum, the greater the opportunity for all political parties and progressive voices to build a coherent and persuasive yes campaign."
