Majority want same powers as Scotland

Responding to a YouGov poll that finds that 63% of people think Wales should have the same powers as Scotland, the Party of Wales leader Leanne Wood said:

"The people of Wales deserve nothing less than to be placed on an equal footing with Scotland.

"This poll is consistent with others that show that most people in Wales believe that more decisions over the issues that affect us should be made here in Wales.

"The so-called vow made to people in Scotland by the three UK party leaders during their referendum campaign is falling short of expectations, demonstrating yet again that the Westminster establishment lags behind public opinion.  People in Wales want progress. Parity with Scotland is a must.

"Plaid Cymru will lead the way in delivering the change that the people of Wales want as we continue on our national journey."
