Wales: Schedule 5, LCOs and committee inquiries in Westminster and Cardiff Bay

I gave evidence to the National Assembly’s Subordinate Legislation Committee last week, for its inquiry on the development of Schedule 5 to the Government of Wales Act 2006.  For those interested, a note will appear in due course on the Committee’s website (here).  HERE is my own memorandum of evidence to them.

A related development is the publication of a report by the Commons Welsh Affairs Committee reviewing the LCO process, which concludes it works far better than the All Wales Convention did, or indeed appeared to be the thrust of the Subordinate Legislation Committee’s questions to me (and the Law Society, who gave evidence just before I did).  The WAC report is available here.  Peter Hain immediately responded welcoming their report, and the Wales Office News Release with his comments is here.
