Andrew RT Davies says Senedd rebrand "overdue"

Calls for the Welsh Assembly to change its name have been welcomed by the leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies.

Today the Presiding Officer launched a consultation asking the people of Wales how its name could be changed to best reflect its role and increased responsibilities.

Mr Davies has long called for the Assembly to be "a proper Welsh Parliament".

The time has come for Wales's devolved institution to lose the ‘Assembly’ tag and brand itself as a proper Welsh parliament – strengthening the distinction between legislature and executive, while giving it the accolade the people of Wales afforded it in the 2011 referendum. The process for this to happen is very simple. One small amendment to the Government of Wales Act 2006 would be all that needs to change the National Assembly for Wales into the Welsh parliament.

No expensive rebrand, no new buildings, no new protocol, but what a statement it would be!

– Andrew RT Davies, Leader, Welsh Conservatives
