Statement on behalf of the Welsh Labour executive committee Welsh Labour Chair TECWYN THOMAS, speaking on behalf of the executive, said:
"This is a momentous point in the history of Welsh Labour and the politics of Wales. As representatives of the party membership in Wales, we all realise the responsibility that has been placed upon us to act responsibly in the interests of the people of Wales.
"With such a major and vital decision facing the Labour Party and Wales, the executive feels it is right and proper that the wider party be consulted in the fairest and most open way possible. "We have therefore decided that should a party decision be required on Labour entering a coalition in the National Assembly for Wales, then a special conference will be called to allow the membership of our party and party affiliates to have their say."
Notes: ·The special conference will take place on Friday July 6 ·
The executive committee will meet on a date before July 6 to make a recommendation to the special conference Ends.
Yes our Tecwyn of Caernarfon finds himself in the "hot seat" as the negotiations twist and turn as each week passes by.
