MK launches “Towards a National Assembly of Cornwall”

Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall has today (St Piran’s Day) launched its policy document entitled “Towards a National Assembly of Cornwall.”

MK has a manifesto commitment to the creation of a National Assembly of Cornwall, with powers broadly equivalent to the Scottish Parliament, as set out in the Scotland Act 1998. The document sets out what greater self-government could mean for Cornwall.

The document demonstrates that the creation of a National Assembly of Cornwall would not make Cornwall independent of the UK, but would make it a more empowered part of the governance of the United Kingdom. It also shows how a National Assembly would control the majority of the public sector in Cornwall including the National Health Service, all aspects of education and a wide range of public bodies, as well as local government.

A copy of the document can be downloaded from the MK website:
