Book looks at radical Liberal MP William Powell

The life of a radical Welsh Liberal MP is being chronicled in a book by Denley Owen.

William Powell was a 19th century landowner, from Llanboidy in Carmarthenshire, who enjoyed the benefits of his class, but was also an advocate of social reform.

The author explained more about Squire Powell to Vaughan Roderick on BBC Wales' Sunday Supplement radio programme.
