NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ... THE GREAT DEBATE: You're Doing a Bad Job for North Wales; Survey Shows Damning Verdict on Our Assembly, but First Minister Is Still `Encouraged' by Findings
Byline: STEVE BAGNALL and DAVID ANDREW
NORTH Wales people last night delivered a stinging rebuke to the Welsh Assembly's performance in the region.
An exclusive Daily Post survey revealed more than 70pc believed the Assembly serves South Wales better than the North. Less than a third of people questioned across the region thought life had improved since devolution.
Forty-one per cent disagreed with any assertion life had improved since devolution. And more than 33pc thought the Assembly was doing a poor job compared with almost a quarter who thought it was doing a good job.
But the poll of more than 300 people,of which only a third voted for devolution, revealed almost half now wanted to see the Assembly continue.
First Minister Rhodri Morgan last night said he was ``encouraged by the survey but not complacent.''
