Ac­tion is what Welsh cam­paign needs says...

Motor Sport News - - Rally News - Jack Benyon

Ac­tion. Ex­cel­lent. For weeks this news­pa­per has backed the Ral­ly4wales cam­paign to raise aware­ness of the MSA/NRW stale­mate.

How­ever, up un­til this point, it’s mostly been hot air. Peo­ple say­ing this, peo­ple say­ing that. Here­say. As valu­able as it’s been for keep­ing the cam­paign mo­men­tum mov­ing, now we have the ac­tion we’ve yearned for.

This is a well-re­searched pro­posal with two very key el­e­ments. Ed­wards works day in, day out with the Welsh gov­ern­ment and un­der­stands how its bod­ies and mem­bers work. His con­tact book in the gov­ern­ment is sub­stan­tial and he pro­vides the knowl­edge on the bu­reau­cracy.

Then you have Coed­wigaeth Pence­lyn, which not only looks af­ter forests, but has a ral­ly­ing back­ground and all the nec­es­sary equip­ment to ex­e­cute the re­pairs.

It does in­volve NRW al­low­ing for­est use for free, but be­cause of the deficit NRW claims to have been amount­ing over the last year, it will also be bet­ter off.

While this deal may have po­ten­tial flaws, it’s progress. It’s ac­tion.

Con­tinue to back the Ral­ly4wales cam­paign and make your lo­cal gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives aware of the is­sues in Wales.

A so­lu­tion could well be around the cor­ner if all par­ties can agree.
