A Welsh Assembly will bring the country's quangos under democratic control, according to a report by the Welsh Local Government Association.

Whether the boards of existing quangos are abolished or their responsibilities passed to the assembly they will need to work in partnerships led by the 22 Welsh councils, says the report.

There are an estimated 300 quangos in Wales, according to the WLGA. The report urges the government to abolish a number of them.

First to go would be Tai Cymru, the Welsh housing quango. The report calls for its powers to monitor and finance housing associations to be transferred to local authorities.
