Welsh Democracy Is Under Powered, Over Stretched And Under Strain: New Report Calls For A Substantial Increase In The Number Of Assembly Members


A new report published today calls for an increase in the number of Assembly Members (AMs) from the current 60 to a more effective 100.

It argues that the current number of AMs in the National Assembly is insufficient to allow for proper scrutiny of the Welsh Government and its legislative programme.
