WREXHAM Assembly Member Lesley Griffiths is calling on people to make their voice heard in the debate on how Wales will be governed in the future.
The AM was responding to a call for evidence from the All Wales Convention, under the Chairmanship of the former eminent UN diplomat, Sir Emyr Jones Parry.
The All Wales Convention has been set-up by the Welsh Assembly Government to prepare the ground for a possible referendum on full law-making powers for the National Assembly.
The Convention wants to provide the Welsh public with a balanced view of the arguments to help people make up their mind about the next step for Wales and is inviting organisations and individuals to make formal written submissions before January 31.
Lesley Griffiths said: “I hope that individuals, organisations, schools and colleges consider making their views known to the Convention.
“The Convention have said they want to the debate to be as broad as possible and get opinions from people from all parts of Wales. A part of this will be through a written evidence based approach and that is why they are calling for submissions now.”
The All Wales Convention will visit Wrexham next spring to host an oral evidence gathering session, which will be designed to give individuals and organisations the opportunity to supplement their formal written submissions.
It will be open to members of the public and will take place in Wrexham on April 23. The venue of this event is yet to be confirmed.
To take part, first advise the Secretariat of the All Wales Convention by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 12.
