Devolution: Wales

Question for Wales Office

UIN 907191, tabled on 24 October 2018

What assessment he has made of the effect on the devolution settlement in Wales of the UK leaving the EU.

Answered on

Leaving the EU will result in a significant increase in the decision-making powers of the Welsh Assembly and Welsh Government.

This is another step forward in Welsh devolution. It is hard to believe that the last Labour Government left us with the LCO model, which hardly showed confidence in colleagues in Cardiff Bay.
