While everyone else was leafing their way through the Williams report to discover the optimum, i.e. reduced number of councils (and councillors) in Wales, Rosemary Butler was talking about the need for more AMs.
Speaking as a witness to the Welsh Affairs Committee, Ms Butler told MPs that the present figure was insufficient as only 42 members were available to sit on a "relentless cycle" of committees.
She also felt that the position of Presiding Officer should be re-christened Speaker in light of the legislative burden soon to be undertaken.
Could there be a pattern emerging here?
