Letter: Do not write off the Welsh lobbying scene

Following the collapse of GJW Wales ('GJW to wind up as James calls in creditors,' 17 March) some are suggesting that PA in Wales has not taken off as hoped and that the National Assembly is probably not worth lobbying: this is simply not true.

The devolved administration has power over most things that affect our lives (health, education, etc) while passing the buck to Westminster on things such as taxes and pensions. And who wants to be caught holding the pension purse strings right now?

We have watched the PA sector in Wales become an integral part of policy-making. There are a number of international companies that recognise the benefits of working with the assembly in a way that often gives Westminster a respectful nudge on policies and practices.
