Welsh Labour has criticised the proposals for further devolution expected to be announced by the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister later. A spokesperson says:
Any progress on putting the Welsh devolution settlement on a firmer footing in terms of powers and funding should be welcomed.
However, this process has shown one thing above all others - that Wales remains an afterthought for the Tories.
There’s no parity with Scotland in the offer being mooted and people will rightly ask why that is.
They’ve slashed £1.5bn from our budget and they have waited until the last days of this parliament to start talking about fair funding for Wales.
The Labour offer in the General Election is clear – an ambitious devolution package, fair funding and a commitment to tackle the cost of living crisis.
David Cameron and Nick Clegg have unveiled proposals for a range of new powers for the Welsh Government and National Assembly.
The UK Government is to announce a range of new powers for the Welsh Assembly in what it calls a 'landmark moment' in devolution
