As part of the RICS UK External Affairs team, David addresses policy, public affairs and press activity to build RICS' influence, credibility and profile and gain recognition of our professional standards.
David ensures that RICS makes the widest possible contribution to the people and economy of Wales as devolution matures. An important part of his mission is ensuring the ‘voice’ of members in Wales comes through in our policy work at both a UK and international level.

The Welsh Liberal Democrat manifesto is in surprising contrast to other parties, particularly Plaid Cymru and the Conservatives, and focuses heavily on both Brexit and "bread and butter" issues.
Much of Labour's manifesto refers to the activities of the devolved Welsh Labour Government and re-affirms its commitment to promises, such as the 20,000 affordable homes target, and affirms a desire to ban letting agents’ fees.
The Welsh Conservative manifesto contrasts with the 2016 assembly document, which focused directly on specific projects and issues and far less on the constitution; this is probably a reflection of the vastly changed landscape after the EU Referendum. Notably, the manifesto demands significant Welsh Assembly and Welsh Government input on Brexit.

On the 23 January Welsh Government, with input from Plaid Cymru and the Welsh Liberal Democrats, published its long awaited policy document on Brexit. Following on from the setting out of the position of the Scottish Government with a mixture of scene setting and position calling, it was a thorough contribution to an often vigorous policy debate.
