Mark Williams MP welcomes the publication of the draft Wales Bill


Ceredigion's Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Mark Williams has welcomed the publication of today's draft Wales Bill.

Commenting Mark Williams said;

'Liberal Democrats have long campaigned for fiscal devolution, and so the publication of this Bill could not come quick enough. I welcome the opportunity for the pre-legislative scrutiny by the Welsh Affairs Select Committee, and then legislation as soon as possible thereafter.

'This Government has a proud record on devolution and it is now time to progress that further. It is particularly important that meaningful borrowing powers are enacted as soon as possible and that the accountability of our National Assembly can be enhanced by income tax powers.

'Liberal Democrats are ambitious for Wales, and this legislation gives the Assembly enhanced tools to do the job.'
