Here's the full text of the letter sent by Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb inviting the leaders of other parties to a devolution summit. He's invited senior Labour, Liberal Democrat and Plaid Cymru MPs to the meeting which he says will take place in October. He also says he's arranging similar meetings with party leaders in the Assembly.
The rejection of independence by the people of Scotland last week has stimulated a wider debate about constitutional renewal in the United Kingdom.
On Wednesday I will be attending the first meeting of the devolution Cabinet committee chaired by William Hague and I have already had preliminary discussions with him about this important work. We are both in absolute agreement that Wales should be central to the debate that is now commencing.
I want us to use this opportunity positively to look again at how we secure the best possible devolution settlement for the people of Wales. I want to move forward in a realistic, open-minded and pragmatic way; I am therefore writing to invite you to a summit of Welsh party leaders in Westminster to discuss how we deliver devolution that works for Wales.
There are some significant matters where already questions are being asked. I would like us to have this discussion together in a spirit of cooperation and with a desire to put the interests of Wales first.
I would like to hold the summit at the Wales Office as soon as possible after Parliament returns in October. My diary secretary will be in touch with your offices to agree a suitable date.
I am also arranging meetings with party leaders in the Assembly to ensure their views feed in to the debate.
