The Commission on Devolution in Wales will hold a series of public meetings in June to hear the public’s views on the current settlement and how it can be improved. Chair of the Commission Paul Silk is encouraging as many people as possible to come along and have their say even if they can't attend.

“There are also a number of other ways to engage with us. Our website hosts a questionnaire and forum and we would also welcome people sharing their views with us via email, letter or phone. My message is simple – get involved and help us make sure Wales has the right powers for the future.”

The public meetings begin next Tuesday in Llandudno Town Hall and at the Catrin Finch Centre in Wrexham and on Wednesday at Llangefni Town Hall and at Penrhyn Hall in Bangor.

Public meetings will be rolled out across the rest of Wales later in June.
