Should the number of Welsh Assembly members be increased or reduced from 60?

Question details

Survey years

  • 21 February 2017: ICM survey for BBC Wales with 1002 respondents, 18 and older.   

    Full answer options: - 'There should be more than 60 AMs because they are needed to properly scrutinise government and create policy as the Welsh Assembly's powers increase' - 'There should be no increase because the current 60 AMs should be able to manage any additional workload resulting from the Assembly having increased powers' - 'They should reduce the number of AMs from 60 because the workload of the Welsh Assembly could be carried out by fewer politicians' - 'Don't know'
