Understanding devolution in Wales

Section 2: Ongoing issues for devolved government


There are some debates which have been recurring through the duration of devolution: the fairness of the financial settlement Wales receives, how many members the Senedd should have, the quality of scrutiny and the relationships between different parts of the UK.

These issues have been touched upon while examining the repeated attempts to revise the powers of the Welsh Parliament, but this section explores each in more depth.
