Clegg wants more Welsh devolution

Nick Clegg says he wants to see an all-party pledge for further devolution to Wales similar to one for Scotland.

Nick Clegg has said he wants to see an all-party pledge for further devolution to Wales similar to one for Scotland.

It follows a promise by leaders of the three main UK parties to give the Scottish Parliament more powers over tax and social security if a majority rejects independence in the referendum.

Speaking during a visit to Cardiff, the deputy prime minister said the Lib Dems had always "pioneered" devolution.

He hoped the Tories and Labour would work with his party to come up with a consensus on which powers could be devolved to Wales next.
