As the state increased its role in delivering services over the course of the twentieth century, distinctly Welsh institutions might have been created for their delivery, but the Welsh base was never as great as its Scottish equivalent. At the start of the twentieth century, the assimilationist nature of the original Anglo-Welsh union was still evident, though there was politically, as well as culturally, much that set Wales apart from England. By the end of the twentieth century, at the point when the Welsh Assembly was being set up, Welsh political institutions had cut out a remarkable place in Welsh society signalling a significant transformation in the nature of Wales's place in the union.
