Prof Roger Scully on poll findings over Assembly powers

Support for Welsh independence has fallen to its lowest recorded level in the wake of the Scottish referendum, according to a new poll for BBC Wales.

The survey, carried out days after Scotland voted No, found just 3% wanted to Wales to be independent.

But there was strong support for the idea of more powers being devolved to the Welsh Assembly with 49% in favour.

ICM Research interviewed a random sample of 1,006 people in Wales over the telephone.

Prof Roger Scully of the Wales Governance Centre at Cardiff University said: "Support for independence is the lowest I've seen anywhere.

"There has been a clear move towards supporting more powers, and some of the people who may have said 'independence' have gone in that direction.

"We're getting close to a majority saying they want things to go further."
