Welsh opposition leader asks PM to consider Wales as future G8 host

The Opposition leader in the Assembly, Andrew RT Davies, has written to David Cameron asking him to consider holding the G8 summit in Wales when it's next the UK's turn. It'll be held in Northern Ireland next year but won't return to the UK until 2021.

I see no reason why Wales should not host the governments of eight of the world's largest economies.

We are now the only part of the UK that hasn’t done so and serious consideration should be given to a Welsh venue in 2021.

There are numerous hotels - or even castles and racecourses - that would easily rise to the challenge.

Wales’ turn on the G8 stage is overdue and I hope the Prime Minister takes this proposal forward.
