Its legislative priorities and aspirations are outlined for its 5 year term and are updated annually.
Legislation is a crucial tool for Welsh Ministers to implement policy to the benefit of the people of Wales. The Government of Wales Act 2006 enables the Welsh Government to bring forward its own programme of legislation.
Following the Yes vote in the 3rd March 2011 referendum on further law making powers for the National Assembly and the commencement of Part 4 of the Government of Wales Act, the legislative programme is made up of Assembly Bills.
We also have the following additional legislative vehicles enabling us to take forward policies:
- Subordinate Legislation
- Transfer of Functions Orders
- UK Parliamentary Bills.
The Welsh Government may also seek to extend the subjects on which the National Assembly for Wales can pass Assembly Bills, as listed in Schedule 7 to the Government of Wales Act 2006.
Different types of legislation put forward by the Welsh Government are subject to different procedures which may require scrutiny and approval by the National Assembly for Wales.
