Should Cornwall have its own government?

Mebyon Kernow has drawn up plans for National Assembly.

It reckons the Duchy should make its down decisions - not rely on Westminster.

Now a document laying out proposals for powers broadly similar to the Scottish Parliament is being published on St Piran's Day.

Party spokesman Stephen Richardson said: "Quite often Cornwall's quite badly let down like for instance what's been going on with the storms and the rail link. We just believe that we can do things in a much better way if the people who live and work and play here actually had a greater input into the decisions.

"Our GDP is much worse than some eastern European countries so we think that we can improve that dramatically if we can make decisions that are based in Cornwall and are going to put Cornwall first."

In a statement, Mebyon Kernow said: "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."

The booklet is being formally launched at the County Arms in Truro at 11am on Wednesday.
