Welsh Affairs Committee
Report published, awaiting a Government response.
The Welsh Affairs Committee will undertake pre-legislative scrutiny of the draft Wales Bill in October and November 2015. The Government plans to publish the draft Bill when Parliament returns from the party conferences in mid-October.
The draft Bill aims to move the Welsh model of devolution from a ‘conferred’ to ‘reserved’ powers model and devolve further powers to Wales in respect of energy, transport, the environment and elections.
The Committee will examine whether the Government’s proposals, particularly in respect of the reserved powers model, are sound, and whether the provisions of the draft Wales Bill deliver the policy intentions of the UK Government.
