§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the latest number of representations he has received since the publication of the White Paper "Our Changing Democracy"; how many were generally in support of the Government's proposals; how many wanted less devolution of power; and how many favoured greater devolution than proposed in the White Paper.
§ Mr. John Morris
I have received a total of 1,793 representations since the publication of the devolution White Paper (Cmnd 6348). Of these 162 are generally in support of the Government's proposals, 117 ask for less than the proposals and 1,476 favour greater devolution. The great majority of the last 583W group appear to be the result of an organised campaign.
