A Day in the Life of an AM & Future Shape of Welsh Devolution

Nick’s coffee morning presentation will offer a behind the scenes look at the National Assembly for Wales and details what an Assembly Member (AM) gets up to in their constituencies as well as in Cardiff. Nick considers this a great way to meet constituents and helps give people a better understanding of what he does as an AM, Shadow Minister, and constituency AM back home in Monmouth.

‘A Day in the Life’ is a non-party-political talk and open to anyone to attend. The talk will also include the future shape of Welsh devolution. Appetite for independence is low in Wales, but polls suggest support for further powers stands at 49%, including devolving tax raising powers which is of great concern to the people of this constituency. Afterwards, Nick will open up the floor for questions.

Nick Ramsay was elected as Assembly Member for Monmouth in May 2007 and served as Shadow Minister for Local Government & Public Services until October 2008 when he was appointed Shadow Minister for Finance. Nick has since served as Shadow Health Minister and Opposition Chief Whip and Business Manager. Nick was re-elected by the voters of Monmouth in May 2011 and subsequently ran for leadership of the Conservative group narrowly losing out to Andrew RT Davies. In July 2011, Nick was appointed Shadow Minister for Business, Enterprise and Technology and served until February 2014. Nick then returned to the Shadow Cabinet when he was appointed Shadow Minister for Finance in July 2014.

CAMPAIGNERS for a Cancer Drugs Fund for Wales today handed in the biggest petition ever to have been presented Assembly Members.
