Plaid Cymru's leader Leanne Wood says she's 'surprised and disappointed' that a major report into devolution didn't go further in its recommendations. She said the Silk Commission, which included a Plaid Cymru representative, had 'done a good job' in gathering evidence and expert opinion.
But she said the report missed opportunities to push devolution on towards a 'sustainable' future and described its proposals 'are not radical, all they do is bring us up to where we should be today, catching up to the same position as the other UK countries.'
Despite her party's disappointment with the report's recommendations, she said they represented a step forward and should become reality as soon as possible.
The recommendations of the Silk Commission should be implemented at the earliest possible opportunity to end constitutional confusion.
It’s now up to governments at both ends of the M4 to work quickly to deliver what has been agreed. There is no reason and no justification for delaying this process.
These powers are vital if we are to build our economy and create work, and this is Plaid Cymru’s priority.
