What the Welsh referendum is about: the official version

Here’s the official booklet from the Electoral Commission explaining what next month’s Welsh referendum is about and which is being sent to every household in Wales:

The Liberal Democrats are campaigning for a Yes vote, with Kirsty Williams saying,

In March, the people of Wales will have the opportunity to vote in a referendum to ensure for the first time that laws that affect only Wales are made only in Wales.

The Welsh Liberal Democrats are united in our enthusiasm to campaign for a ‘Yes’ vote. As well as working constructively with progressives in all parties in the ‘Yes’ campaign, Welsh Liberal Democrats will also be encouraging and motivating our own supporters to Say Yes for Wales.

As an opposition leader, I am often critical of the record of the Labour-Plaid Government in Wales. The Welsh people will have their say on government policies in this year’s Welsh General election. But this referendum should not be a referendum on the record of the Labour-Plaid administration.
