Schedule 7 of the 2006 Government of Wales Act set out the legislative powers the National Assembly would enjoy if, following a ‘Yes’ vote in a referendum the ‘Assembly Act’ provisions set out in Part 4 came into effect. The principal purpose of the Order was to ensure that Schedule 7 contained provisions that cover all the Matters in respect of which the Assembly already has legislative powers. The Committee’s inquiry concluded that the draft order did broadly contain all the necessary provisions but sought further clarification from the Government in a number of areas.
