Welsh Government Proposes Historic Changes to Senedd
The Welsh government has proposed significant changes to the Senedd, including increasing the number of members and ministers, and scrapping the first-past-the-post voting system. The reforms are estimated to cost around £18m per year. Supporters argue that the changes are necessary to reflect Wales' increased law-making powers and tax-raising abilities, as well as compensate for the reduction in Welsh representation in the UK and European parliaments. Critics, however, argue that the funds could be better spent on improving public services.
