Clegg to promise more power for Wales

The Deputy Prime Minister is expected to tell Welsh Liberal Democrats that he's committed to transferring more powers from Westminster to the Welsh Government. Nick Clegg will tell delegates that devolution remains central to his philosophy.

As Liberal Democrats we know that a fairer society for Wales means more power for Wales too. That’s why we pushed for the Silk Commission and why we want a proper debate about how to devolve more power. This is something we can only do together. Together as nations; together as governments; and together as Liberal Democrats.

Devolution has always been and remains a basic tenet of our party and key to the sort of liberalism I believe in. We make compromises daily in government, but be sure of one thing: our commitment to devolution, indeed my commitment to more powers for Wales, is as strong as it ever was.

– Nick Clegg
