Description

We are delighted that this year’s PAC Annual Lecture will, for the first time, be given by a sitting Assembly Member, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas AM.

Lord Elis-Thomas AM needs no introduction. He is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable politicians in Wales and will be casting his eye over nearly half a century of politics with particular emphasis on how he has, first hand, witnessed the way in which minority governments survive. He was first elected to Westminster in 1974 and thus experienced the highs and lows of the Wilson and Callaghan minority governments of the 1970s. First elected to the Assembly in 1999, he has witnessed several periods of minority government in Wales, some as Presiding Officer, a post he held with distinction for twelve years. As an active member of the House of Lords for a quarter of a century he has also seen how the second chamber often challenges the Commons, especially when there is no majority or a small majority there. As Labour continues to govern without an absolute majority in the Assembly, and the Conservatives have embarked on a minority administration in Westminster, there is nobody better placed to offer some experience and wisdom in deciphering the governance challenges of the current political world.

That the lecture also coincides with the anniversary of Dafydd becoming an independent AM is purely coincidental but will undoubtedly add to the interest in hearing one of Wales’ most interesting and flavourful politicians share his insight on the past, the present and the future.

PACs annual lecture is being revamped and for the first time ever we’re doing it in the style of a sit down buffet meal. Tickets are £16.50 and a translation service will be available.
