Would independence for Wales end poverty?

October 17th 2020

On the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we ask Carwyn Jones, Helen Mary Jones and David Melding if independence for Wales would end poverty.

The Coronavirus outbreak has highlighted the sometimes tense relationship between different parts of the UK. With support for independence for Wales increasing, this timely short video asks three of Wales’ leading politicians if they think constitutional change could help to challenge poverty.
