Two interesting stories in today’s Western Mail:
- David Cameron is expected to announce Conservative support for a referendum on primary legislative powers, if the Assembly calls for one (flatteringly, I’m quoted at some length in this):
- and the Welsh Labour Party is having a meeting to decide its position on a referendum. Given the importance of Labour’s internal position for the development of Wales’s constitution generally, and its internal divisions, this is pretty significant.
UPDATE: Cameron has indeed said that he would not block a referendum on Part 4 (though he doesn’t think it should be the Assembly’s priority, and strictly speaking it will be a decision for whoever is appointed Secretary of State anyway).
