Paul Silk, Chair of the Commission on Devolution in Wales (the Silk Commission), will be giving oral evidence to the Welsh Affairs Committee on Tuesday 29 April 2014 at 9.30 am in the House of Commons.
The Silk Commission Part II report makes 61 recommendations on the devolution of further powers to Wales and changes to the devolution settlement which could be phased in over a ten-year period. They include changing the model of devolution to the “reserved powers” model in line with that in Scotland and Northern Ireland, the full devolution of youth justice and partial devolution of police, transport and energy.
