This morning the All Wales Convention published its long awaited report on Devolution in Wales.

I very much welcome the publication of this report and Sir Emyr Jones-Parry and his team deserve our thanks for all their hard work and dedication in bringing this report together.

The Convention has clearly identified the failings of the current system and seen advantages in moving to full powers.

It is also clear from the Convention’s research that there is strong support for devolution here in Wales and majority support for further steps to be taken.

David Cameron recently set out our position regarding the holding of a referendum on further powers by stating that if a request was received by a future Conservative Government he would not block it.

It only remains for politicians in all Parties to carefully consider their response to this report.
