Submitted by "Tirion"*

*Rhyddid -Tegwch -Cymuned*

*The State*

The name of this new state should be Cymru. It could be an independent
democratic republic and Welsh could take its rightful place as the official
national language.

*Bill of Rights*

The rights of all citizens regardless of race, colour, language or creed
will be safeguarded in a bill of rights.


The sovereignty of Cymru will rest with its citizens. Good citizenship,
achievements etc could be honoured by the Gorsedd y Beirdd during the
Eisteddfod festival.


The Arlywydd (President) shall be head of state. Yr Arlywydd will feature
prominently in public life and represent Wales abroad.
The Prif Weinidog (PM) will act as head of government.
The Attorney General is appointed by the PM to advise government in matters
of the law.
The new Ministries could replace Quangos with policy's determined by the PM
with cross party subject committees to scrutinise policy.
The Senedd (Parliament) will have legislative authority and the Cynulliad
(Assembly) might assist in scrutinising and amending proposed legislation.
A Treasury would collect tax revenues and approve budget allocations
sanctioned by the Senedd
Regional Councils will provide a link between local and national government
and coordinate economic and social policy at regional level.


Use of the Urdd within the education system would assist in extra curriculum
activities such as trips, exchanges between north and south Wales, summer
camps, sports and to instil motivation, fun and good citizenship.

*National Bank*

A national bank shall monitor the economy and advise the government
accordingly and represent Cymru in the World and European Banks.**


The Judicial system would manage criminal and civil court proceedings. The
victim would be central to criminal hearings giving input on sentencing.
Priority then would be given to the rehabilitation of the offender. Repeat
offenders and violent offenders face stiffer sentences.


The nations defence could be based on the Suisse institution somewhere
between a militia and a regular army. National armoury's providing a safe
environment for local gun clubs to meet.
