"The National Assembly enjoys a close relationship with Wales' universities. It's an opportunity to recall the sacrifices made by the quarrymen and others to establish this university and other national institutions in Wales that were the fore runners to the National Assembly. I accepted the degree as it's an enormous honour to receive the first degree awarded by Bangor University and I feel honoured to be considered among the people receiving awards today," said The Rt Hon Rhodri Morgan, First Minister.
