Welsh Lib Dems says status quo fails to serve Wales’s best interests

The Welsh Lib Dems have issued the following statement in relation to the findings of the cross-party commission.

Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, Jane Dodds MS said:

“The Commission is right in its findings that the status quo isn’t only unsustainable, but also fails to serve Wales’s best interests.

The debate so far has lacked nuance and focused on two extremes, maintaining the status quo, or all-out independence. We’re pleased to see the commission genuinely exploring other, more pragmatic ways in which we can reform Wales’s relationship with the UK that are more in line with the view of the public.

The real test for the Commission now will be the extent to which it carves out a realistic approach to reform, and to what extent it has set out a plan to shift power within Wales from Cardiff Bay, giving power to communities across Wales to shape their own destiny and future.

Neither the Conservatives or Labour have offered any real plans to strengthen Wales’ place in the Union, with a lack of urgency from the UK Labour party and an evident disdain towards devolution amongst the Tories.

As Liberal Democrats, we believe in a voluntary nation of equals where power is shared equally by every part of the UK and where we come together to improve our standing on the world stage.”
