Former Plaid Cymru leader Dafydd Wigley has urged voters to back the party's demand for Wales to have parity with Scotland. Lord Wigley, who's co-ordinating Plaid's Westminster Election campaign, claims that the Welsh Government would get an extra £1.2 billion a year from Westminster if Wales was funded on the same basis as Scotland.
He said that the St David's day agreement on devolution announced by the Westminster coalition was "a bitterly disappointing statement". He contrasted it with the "brave words" of Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb last October, when the cabinet minister said he determined that Wales should not play second fiddle. Lord Wigley said that instead there had been a race to the bottom, with "every recalcitrant London-centric politician" wielding a veto..
The conference closed with speeches from Plaid Cymru's parliamentary leader, Elfyn Llwyd and from the woman that the party has picked to replace him in Dwyfor Meirionnydd, Liz Saville Roberts. Mr Llwyd admitted that there had been some talk by Plaid members that Westminster politics is too male, pale and stale. He said he wouldn't make a joke about his own appearance but predicted that his female successor would be part of a bigger group of MPs "making the case for Wales" in a hung parliament.
Plaid Cymru says it can only give a cautious welcome to the Silk Commission's report, claiming that it "falls short" of signalling real progress on actually securing more meaningful powers for Wales.
Plaid Cymru MP Elfyn Llwyd has introduced a bill in the House of Commons which would toughen up the law on domestic violence. He told MPs that changing the law would send a strong message to offenders and to police officers investigating allegations of domestic violence.
Plaid Cymru's Parliamentary Leader Elfyn Llwyd says he would consider accepting a post in a future Welsh Government if it were offered to him. He's been an MP since 1992 but has announced that he'll step down at the next UK Election.
In an interview for tonight's Sharp End programme he tells our Political Editor Adrian Masters that a role in Cardiff Bay is not 'part of his thinking' but that if he were offered the post of Counsel General he'd 'certainly give very serious consideration to it.'
