That this House welcomes the findings of the National Assembly for Wales Committee on European and External Affairs that recommend continuing with an EU-wide cohesion policy for all regions of the European Union, both old and new Member States, with continued access to convergence and competitiveness-type funding subject to need and transitional support for those regions moving out of convergence status; believes that the ideas of a renationalisation of Cohesion Policy, by repatriating EU funding to relativelyricher Member States, including the UK, should be rejected as not being in the best interests of Wales, the UK or the wider European Union; and calls on the UK Coalition Government to work with the Welsh Government to make the case for continuation of an EU-wide cohesion policy, including access toconvergence support for qualifying regions, and provison of transitional funding arrangements, post 2013.
