Today it’s reported that former WDA employee Professor Brian Morgan has called for the return of the WDA.

It’s a shame that we’ve become so bogged down with institutional reform in Wales: WDA, health boards, local authorities…and of course the Assembly and its powers. You might say part of the problem has been the more limited settlement that Wales received and the relative novelty of having access to new levers.

It can’t be a coincidence that the WDA abolition was announced in the wake of Tony Blair’s personal rejection of the Richard Commission proposals. If you can’t take power from above, take some from below.
