MK publishes new version of “Towards a National Assembly of Cornwall”
At a Policy Forum on Friday (22nd June), Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall launched an updated version of its campaign publication titled “Towards a National Assembly of Cornwall.”

Dick Cole with the new documentThe document set out how the devolution of significant political powers to Cornwall – and bringing the majority of the public sector under local democratic control – will be good for our local communities.

Party leader Cllr Dick Cole said: “This is a very important document, which makes a strong and positive case for devolution to Cornwall.

“It dispels the misrepresentation that a National Assembly would be independent of the UK, clearly stating that it would be an integral and empowered part of the United Kingdom. It also dismisses the suggestion that devolution could come through the reform of local government.

”It continues to be MK’s hope that this publication, and our associated campaigns, will help to promote a mature, respectful and wide-ranging debate about the future governance of the whole of the United Kingdom – which must include the case for a Cornish Assembly.”
