Hold a referendum in Wales on returning devolved powers to the UK Government

Petition Details

The Government should hold a referendum to ask the people of Wales if they want to return devolved powers to the UK Government. The 1997 referendum had turnout of just over 50%, and a yes vote of 50.3%. This means only around 25% of the eligible electorate voted for devolution.

Additional Information

Given the way Devolution has evolved in Wales, we believe a new referendum needs to be held, to ask the people of Wales if they want devolved powers to be returned to the UK Government, and the Welsh Government and Parliament dissolved.
