The Referendum: Where does YOUR Parliamentary Candidate Stand?

A member of Wales First, Hedd Gwynfor, has conducted a survey of parliamentary candidates' intentions in relation to the upcoming referendum on further law-making powers for the Welsh Assembly. The results - just in - are shown below.

Rather than add comment of my own, I'll let the results speak for themselves. The Parliamentary seats are listed alphabetically, with the name of the candidates and political parties underneath.

Two simple questions were asked. The answers are set out next to the candidate's name. Scroll down the list to see where YOUR candidate stands:

Y CWESTIYNAU/THE QUESTIONS:

1, A fyddwch chi yn pleidleisio o blaid neu yn erbyn trosglwyddo'r pwerau deddfu yn yr 20 maes datganoledig o San Steffan i Gynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru yn y refferendwm arfaethedig sydd i'w gynnal yng Nghymru o fewn y flwyddyn nesaf?

2, A fyddwch chi'n ymgyrchu o blaid neu yn erbyn trosglwyddo'r pwerau deddfu yn yr 20 maes datganoledig o San Steffan i Gynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru yn y refferendwm arfaethedig?

1, Will you VOTE for or against the transfer of legislative powers in the 20 devolved areas from Westminster to the National Assembly in the upcoming referendum to be held in Wales within the next year?

2, Will you be CAMPAIGNING for or against the transfer of legislative powers in the 20 devolved fields from Westminster to the National Assembly in the upcoming referendum?

Looking at the actual elected MPs, I make that in excess of 75% dont knows - but only 1 firm No (David Davies). Now that the election is over it might be worth asking the question again??
