St David's Day will arrive early at Westminster this year. The Commons is staging its annual Welsh Day debate next Thursday, February 28.
It is almost as much of a tradition to hold the debate on a Thursday - allowing most MPs an early trip home - as it is to hold the debate itself.
In these post-devolution days it does seem a little anachronistic to have a token day where Parliament discusses Welsh affairs.
It is not as if MPs will decide anything: the debate is usually on the subject "that this house do now adjourn" and will not feature anything so vulgar as a vote.
I suspect that if Y Byd had not failed to get off the ground it would not be holding its front page, but I will watch the debate in the hope of being proved wrong.
