Legislative guide on Welsh Devolution

Lori Frater | 8 years ago

Lori Frater provides an in depth look at the current and future legislative framework for full devolution in Wales.

Acts reviewed include:

  • The 1998 Government of Wales Act and the introduction of a new National Assembly for Wales with areas of executive competence to introduce secondary legislation;
  • The 2006 Government of Wales Act and the introduction of a conferred model of legislative competence enabling the National Assembly to introduce primary legislation on 20 subject fields;
  • The Wales Act 2014 and the extension of legislative competence into identified areas of taxation; and
  • The future of the devolution settlement with the introduction of the Wales Bill and the proposal to move from a conferred model to a reserved model of devolution.

This time we would like to gift you this guide. It shows an example of the work you will receive when you subscribe.
