The Future of Welsh Devolution

It is a particular pleasure to address a joint meeting of the Montgomeryshire Society and the Cymmrodorion – organizations with proud histories – on this memorial occasion. I used to note in the Times records of meetings, frankly never expecting to be asked to speak myself.

I intend to describe recent developments in Wales, to set these firmly within the context of the United Kingdom, to draw on our history, to test our current arrangements against the prevailing expectations and concerns of the Welsh people, and then do a little crystal-ball gazing at what the future may hold for the constitutional arrangements in Wales.
