Give people in Wales the right to record Council metings too

RCT N

"We the undersigned ask that the Welsh Government gives the people and electors of Wales the same ability to record their Local Government meetings as their English counterparts have."
Background:
Thanks to the Local Audit and Accountability Act introduced by the Liberal Democrat /Conservative coalition government in Westminster people in England now have the right to record Council meetings as well as blog and tweet from them?
This opens up the democratic process and could make for much more open government on a local level. With RCT Labour Council having gone back on its promise to broadcast meetings then this could enable a lot more people to hear what is going on.
We think that the people of Rhondda Cynon Taff and the rest of Wales should have this same right and have set up a petition to ask the Local Government Minister in Wales to follow the example set.
