'We're still listening,' says commission chair

Paul Silk, who chairs the Commission on Devolution in Wales, described the poll results as a 'real insight' but said he's aware of opposing views and urged as many people as possible to express those views before 27th December, the deadline for evidence.

These results ... provide a real insight into the public’s views on the current powers of the National Assembly for Wales. The results are generally consistent with trends identified in other surveys, but whilst they show a continued growth in support for the National Assembly as an institution and for it to have further powers, we need to mindful that the people of Wales have differing views.

We still want to hear as many views as possible, whatever they may be - we are still firmly in listening mode. We are taking evidence up until 27 September so please get involved, share your views and help us shape Wales’s future.

– Paul Silk, Chair of the Commission on Devolution in Wales
