THE All Wales Convention will be hosting a public discussion group event at Glyndr University, Wrexham, this evening.

Running from 6.30-8.30pm, it will provide information on the work of the All Wales Convention and engage members of the public in the big debate on the future direction of the National Assembly.

The key questions for discussion revolve around how the people of Wales want the National Assembly to increase its law-making powers – to keep with the current step- by-step approach, or to get the powers all in one go.

The event will be hosted by TV personality Arfon Haines-Davies.

A new online forum is also up and running at to allow people to share their opinions on what they think about devolution in Wales.

The All Wales Convention, chaired by Sir Emyr Jones Parry, is a totally independent and impartial body. Following this consultation period, the All Wales Convention, made up of 16 executive committee members alongside Sir Emyr, will present their findings by the end of 2009.

He said: “We want to inform and engage as many people as possible to enable them to make informed decisions on whether they would like more powers or not for their Assembly in the future.”
