'St David's Day should be a public holiday'

Some 15 years have passed since Assembly Members voted in favour of establishing a public holiday on March 1, and nine years since an opinion poll showed that 87% of Welsh people supported the idea, but nothing has happened since.

There was talk of devolving the power over public holidays back in 2014 but this was blocked by the Secretary of State for Wales at the time.

We believe that the power should be devolved as soon as possible so that the Assembly can make a decision on the matter in time for 2016.
