However before looking in detail at the powers and responsibilities that should be devolved to Wales, I thought it might be good to look at what the survey says about how well our National Assembly compares with the UK Parliament in Westminster.
People were asked to rate how well the National Assembly and UK Parliament were doing their job on a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being extremely satisfied.
In general terms, if we take ratings of 7 and above as positive, a rating of 5 or 6 as neutral, and ratings of 4 and below as negative, we get:
National Assembly ... 38% positive ... 38% neutral ... 25% negative
UK Parliament ... 15% positive ... 38% neutral ... 47% negative
This speaks volumes, but perhaps the most damning fact is that the percentage of people who think Westminster does a bad job is more than three times larger than the percentage who think it does a good job. In contrast, more people are satisfied with the National Assembly than are dissatisfied with it.
People were asked the extent to which they trusted the National Assembly and UK Parliament to act in the best interests of Wales.
This finding is absolutely astounding. The percentage that trusts the National Assembly a great deal is nearly ten times greater than the percentage that trusts Westminster a great deal.
In general terms, if we take "trust a great deal" and "trust to some extent" as an indication of trust, and "don't trust that much" and "don't trust at all" as an indication of lack of trust, we get:
National Assembly ... 79% trust it ... 20% don't trust it
UK Parliament ... 37% trust it ... 62% don't trust it
People were asked whether the National Assembly has done a better or worse job for Wales than the UK Parliament.
Again, I find these figures astounding. Six times as many people think devolution to the National Assembly has made things better for Wales than think it has made things worse.
National Assembly has made things better ... 48%
National Assembly has made things worse ... 8%
There are slight variations across Wales; but by gender, age, socio-economic group, identity and region, many more people think that the National Assembly has done better for Wales compared with Westminster
The decisions that are made about what further powers and responsibilities should be devolved from Westminster to Wales need to be seen in this context. When it comes to satisfaction, trust and performance, people in Wales think the National Assembly has done better than Westminster by some very considerable margins.
