Yesterday Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan opened public consultation into how Assembly electoral boundaries might be drawn in future. The public have 12 weeks to put forward their views on the issue. Andrew RT Davies speaking, at his party's weekly press conference this morning, said this;
I am in favour of the status quo and in favour of de-coupling. I will be feeding this into the consultation process over the next few weeks. The current 40:20 model has serve the Assembly well
By de-coupling, he meant that Assembly and Westminster constituencies would not have the same boundaries. Mr Davies added that he was against Westminster and Assembly Elections being held on the same date. He said that he thought it was important to keep the two separate to avoid confusion.
