Mebyon Kernow will launch a new document entitled, Towards a National Assembly of Cornwall, on St Piran's Day

The document will be formally launched at 11.00 on St Piran’s Day in the function room of the County Arms in Truro.

The event is open to the general public, as well as members of Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall and the press. MK will be represented at the event by prospective parliamentary candidates and the leadership team of the Party.

The document sets out how a National Assembly, with powers broadly equivalent to the Scottish Parliament, would bring the majority of the public sector within Cornwall – including local government, educational institutions, health bodies and other public bodies – under proper democratic control.

It is essentially a consultation document for MK members and the wider population of Cornwall about the nature of the democratic settlement that MK believes should be sought for the future.

Free copies of the booklet will available on the day and a pdf copy will also be posted on the MK website on St Piran’s Day.
