Devolve the same powers to Wales as Scotland
Devolve powers to Wales that are already devolved to Scotland (the first four are also devolved to Northern Ireland) that include:
- social security elements
- charity law
- multiple tax powers
- bank holidays
- land and agricultural assets including the Crown Estate
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:
- rail infrastructure
- further tax & welfare powers
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
