8.1 A history of political representation in Wales

In this section, you will begin by looking at how Wales has been historically represented within British politics, and why such a system of political representation was considered to be unacceptable by some groups in Wales. This will lead onto an examination of the growing demand for devolution for Wales during the 1960s and 1970s, and then again in the mid-1990s. The section concludes by examining the devolution plans put forward by New Labour in 1997, and the structure and powers of NAW created soon after.
