A Welsh Assembly, if introduced by a Labour government, must not be 'a glorified county council', Plaid Cymru leader Dafydd Wigley told Today this morning.

It should have equal powers to the proposed Scottish Parliament with law making and tax raising powers.

'What we need in Wales is a Parliament that takes over at the very least control of the Welsh Office', Mr Wigley told the programme.

It must have status in Europe, he said. Wales does not want a 'glorified county council, something that can debate issues but can't make any meaningful difference'.

There should be a referendum, with a law-making Welsh Parliament as one of the options, Mr Wigley said.
