Addendum - Survey of local government councillors and candidates - results for Anglesey

Release date: 2 May 2014

Due to the delayed elections in Anglesey, the Survey was carried out a year later than in the rest of Wales (May 2013, rather than May 2012). In all other respects, the Survey was identical to that carried out in May 2012. Details of the Survey can be found in the main body of the Local Government Candidates Survey report.
