National Assembly for Wales: Powers

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has received on holding a referendum on extending the powers of the National Assembly for Wales. (150226)

None. There is widespread debate as to the timing of a future referendum and I am aware of the different views that exist. The Government of Wales Act 2006 allows for the National Assembly for Wales to obtain enhanced legislative competence by way of Orders in Council. I am focussed on ensuring that these new procedures are a success.
