The roots of political devolution in Wales can be traced to the end of the nineteenth century. In 1886, Cymru Fydd (‘Young Wales’) was established to promote the objectives of the Liberal Party in Wales and to campaign in favour of Welsh ‘home rule’.

It also coincided with the beginning of administrative devolution in Wales through the creation of the Welsh Board for Education in 1907. Find out more The history of Welsh devolution
