Fifteen years ago today (12th December 2001), a delegation presented 50,000 Declarations demanding a Cornish Assembly to 10 Downing Street. To mark this anniversary, the Leader of Mebyon Kernow has challenged Westminster political parties to back “meaningful democratic devolution to Cornwall.”
In a rallying call to the Mebyon Kernow Annual Conference (19th November 2016), Party Leader Cllr Dick Cole has challenged party members and supporters to redouble their efforts in advance of next year’s local elections.
Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall has described the official DCLG (Department for Communities and Local Government) response to a 10,000-strong petition calling on central government to reinstate funding for the Cornish language as “shameful.” In its reply, DCLG stated that “support for the development of the Cornish language was time-limited” and failed to understand that funding for the language is the responsibility of the Westminster government under Parts 1 and 2 of the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages 2002 and the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities 2014.
A number of leading members of Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall gave evidence at the two-day hearing into new parliamentary constituencies organised by the “Boundary Commission for England” at New County Hall in Truro (on 10th and 11th November).
The threat of a “Devonwall” constituency has galvanised hundreds of people to protest and campaign against the UK Government’s Boundary Review. In order to help people make representations against Devonwall, Mebyon Kernow has produced a range of letters that individuals can print off, sign and send to the Government, MPs and the Boundary Commission.
Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall will be holding its Annual Conference on Saturday 19th November 2016. It will take place in the Council Chamber at Lys Kernow (“New County Hall”), Truro.
At a meeting of Mebyon Kernow’s National Executive on Friday (21st October), it was confirmed that Cllr Dick Cole had been re-elected unopposed as leader of the Party for Cornwall.
The leader of Mebyon Kernow has hit out at the failure of Conservative MPs to oppose the parliamentary Boundary Review during a debate in the House of Commons yesterday (19th October).
