Organ Donation (Legislative Competence)

Inquiry concluded, Report and Government Response published

The Government of Wales Act 2006 introduced a process enabling the National Assembly for Wales further to enhance its law-making powers by a new procedure known as Legislative Competence Orders in Council (LCO). At its meeting on 18 January 2011, the Welsh Affairs Committee decided formally to accept the Secretary of State’s invitation to the Committee to conduct pre-legislative scrutiny of the proposed National Assembly for Wales (Legislative Competence) (Health and Health Services) Order 2011.

The proposed Order, together with an explanatory memorandum by the Welsh Assembly Government, was published as a Command Paper by the Wales Office on 10 January (Cm 7992)
