Welsh Assembly too dull to watch, says AM Steffan Lewis

People are not following the assembly because they find its debates dull, Plaid Cymru AM Steffan Lewis has said.

He said the building's chamber resembles an office more than the seat of Wales' democracy.

"People are interested when we give them something to be interested in," he said in an essay suggesting how proceedings could be shaken up.

Presiding Officer Elin Jones agreed there was a "job of work" to make the assembly more relevant and topical.

Mr Lewis said holding votes by roll call rather than electronically would help liven things up.
