The Welsh Government has today published Reforming Our Union: Shared Governance in the UK.

The continued existence of the United Kingdom as a voluntary association of four nations has been brought into fundamental question by the Brexit crisis – the Union has not been under greater strain at any point in my lifetime.

The Welsh Government believes the Union’s institutions, processes and culture must be reformed if it is to have a sustainable future.

This policy document sets out the Welsh Government’s views on the reforms that are required to put the Union on a sustainable footing for the future.

I intend to make a statement to the National Assembly about Reforming Our Union: Shared Governance in the UK on 15 October.
