The Labour leadership candidate Lisa Nandy has said that the United Kingdom is 'inevitably moving towards a more federal system.'
Her comments follow a call for a federal future for the UK earlier this week from another contender, Sir Keir Starmer.
During a visit to Mold, Lisa Nandy told ITV Wales:
The party's General Election manifesto promised to set up a constitutional convention to look at such matters.
In his remarks earlier this week Sir Keir Starmer said a shake-up is needed because 'the status quo is not working.'
He added that 'We need a new constitutional settlement: a large-scale devolution of power and resources. This will involve building a new long-term political and constitutional consensus. I believe that could best be built on the principle of federalism.'
Nandy and Starmer aren't the only leadership candidates calling for further powers for Wales and Scotland.
Rebecca Long-Bailey told a leadership hustings that the devolved parliaments should be 'on an equal footing' with Westminster. "I'm always going to argue for the union," she said. "But I want our Scottish parliament and our Welsh parliament to feel as completely autonomous and independent as they possibly can whilst having that collaborative relationship with Westminster."
