    Done. Worth adding that you don't have to be resident in Wales to sign the petition.
    I'm at that difficult age... somewhere between birth and death.

    "We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to implement a Bill to establish statutory public rights of access to land and water for recreational and other purposes. The bill should enshrine access rights and responsibilities for the public in the same way that the 2003 Land Reform (Scotland) Act encourages co-operative use of the outdoors for healthy, low impact recreation..."

    Following the presentation of the petition I was interviewed by BBC Wales Radio - Good Evening Wales. It's here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b080dcjj - 42 mins in.

    It was a very civilised discussion and I hope I represented our views calmly and succinctly.

    Thanks for doing that Keith
    I wonder whether Radio Wales had read the petition...

    They certainly knew it was seeking a similar statute to the one that Scotland has had since 2003 so it seems so.
