6 Section 2 summary

You’ve now reached the end of this section, in which you have learned about the issues facing politics in Wales today. These issues include:

  • ongoing debates on the fairness of the funding settlement
  • concerns that the Welsh Parliament is the only primary legislature in the world without its own legal jurisdiction
  • arguments over how many Members of the Senedd there should be
  • widespread concern that Welsh politics lacks robust scrutiny
  • challenging inter-institutional relationships, often exacerbated by differing party politics.

Many of these issues can be traced back to tensions in the original devolution settlement.
