Hywel in Parliament - Debates

Elections (National Assembly for Wales)
Westminster Hall

3rd July 2012

Dr Hywel Francis (Aberavon) (Lab): A moment ago my right hon. Friend asked the rhetorical question: what is the point of all this? I suggest that the point—I hope that this is not true—is that, cynically, the Secretary of State wishes to undermine devolution. She has eloquently pointed out the background to devolution, the struggle to achieve it and the very narrow majority for it. On my right hon. Friend’s watch, and that of previous Labour Secretaries of State, we developed the strategy of partnership, and now we see it unravelled.

Paul Murphy: It has unravelled for party political reasons.
