Unlock Democracy proudly welcomes Wales First Minister Carwyn Jones to give a guest lecture on why a Constitutional Convention is needed to agree a new constitutional settlement for Britain.
This free parliamentary event offers a unique chance to quiz one of the foremost thinkers about devolution, and his unique views on how it should be improved.
We are now a decade on from Devolution and a date for a Scottish referendum on Independence is provisionally set for Autumn 2014. In his first major speech outside of Wales on the issue, the First Minister will outline the vulnerabilities of the current devolutional settlement as he sees it, and why he believes the British Government should be proactive or risk being dictated to by events / nationalist parties.
He will also touch on issues such as the West Lothian Question, whether a new Upper House with equal representation from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
Capacity is limited and we expect the event to be packed so register now.
