Speaker and President of the Catalan Parliament

This Assembly:

b) calls on the Welsh Government to raise this issue with the UK Government to seek a resolution; and

c) urges the Spanish Government to reconsider the prosecution and to seek a resolution of its disputes with representatives of the people of Catalonia through mutual dialogue.
