Petition Action

Devolve the same powers to Wales as Scotland

Petition Details

Devolve powers to Wales that are already devolved to Scotland (the first four are also devolved to Northern Ireland) that include:

- justice
- policing
- social security elements
- charity law
- multiple tax powers
- bank holidays
- land and agricultural assets including the Crown Estate

Additional Information

Wales deserves to be treated equally to Scotland.

There is a cross-party majority that supports further devolution in the Senedd and so the UK government is morally and democratically obliged to devolve these matters. This could help to tackle crime, boost tourism via St David's Day bank holiday, boost energy production and increase tax revenue to fund public services in Wales.

There is also majority Senedd support for devolution of:
- broadcasting
- rail infrastructure
- further tax & welfare powers
