the 'What They've Done For Us' list
The First Decade
Welcome to Aled Edwards' "What They've Done For Us" Economy list. Written a little in the style of Monty Python's Life of Brian "What have the Romans done for us?" the list aims to provide a reliable record of the distinctive Welsh policies brought about by devolution (1999-2009). Beyond underlining the distinctiveness of Welsh policies no substantive attempt is made here to evaluate the performance of Welsh Assembly Governments or to list the policies brought about by other UK legislatures but not adopted in Wales. The dates in brackets normally indicate when the development was announced by the Welsh Assembly Government through a press release.
