Completed petition Welsh Assembly Funding of Services

We, the undersigned, call on the Assembly to fund critical services in Wales that receive no government funding (such as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).

More details

In 2015, the RNLI saved 9,763 people from the waters of the United Kingdom (of which 1,029 people were saved in the waters of Wales). The RSPCA received across the UK over a million calls to their helpline in 2015 and secured nearly 1,800 convictions for animal cruelty and yet receive no funding from the Westminster Government despite having to enforce Westminster Government laws.

I believe that in 2016 this is wrong and that the devolved institutions should fund the hard work that these organisations do for the people of Wales.
