I felt almost overwhelmed by nostalgia on a visit to Cardiff last week to meet the Welsh Environment Minister and discuss the new Sustainable Development Bill that is being brought forward by the Welsh Government.
It took me right back to many earlier visits to Cardiff as Chair of the Sustainable Development Commission over nine years between 2000 and 2009. As a UK-wide body, we trucked around from London to Cardiff to Edinburgh to Belfast – not least to be able to point out to Ministers in Whitehall just how badly they were doing in comparison to Wales and Scotland.
