Ieuan's last day

It's not the most controversial motion ever to be debated in the Senedd but that's not why Plaid Cymru have tabled it. It's more a salute to the man who has led them since 2000. The Assembly is being asked to agree that it:

Welcomes the progress made in securing enhanced devolved powers resulting from the successful referendum in 2011; recognises the widespread support for further devolution; and looks forward to further advances in the devolution of powers, including fiscal responsibility.

The idea is to provide a platform for Ieuan Wyn Jones to give his final speech as party leader and if opposition politicians are so inclined to join Plaid Cymru AMs in singing his praises.
