Response to: The House of Lords Constitution Committee Wales Bill Report
UK Government response to: The House of Lords Constitution Committee Wales Bill Report
A UK Government spokesman said:
The Wales Bill provides a historic opportunity for the Welsh Assembly to secure more powers and will create a stronger, clearer fairer devolution settlement for Wales. The whole purpose of the Bill is to make it much clearer which powers are exercised by the Welsh Assembly and which powers are exercised by the Westminster Parliament.
The Bill implements the cross-party St David’s Day agreement and has been substantially modified following discussions with the Welsh Government, the Assembly and constitutional academics over the past 18 months.
These discussions will continue as the Bill goes through Parliament and there will be plenty of opportunity to debate further amendments over the coming weeks.
