Evidence to Part 2 of the Silk Commission’s inquiry

A little while ago I submitted a formal memorandum of evidence to the Silk Commission, for part 2 of their inquiry into constitutional matters relating to Welsh devolution.  It is concerned with constitutional issues – not what might be devolved, but how, in structural terms.  In particular, I discuss the relationship between a separate Welsh legal jurisdiction and the ‘reserved powers’ model of legislative power for the National Assembly, and what such a legal jurisdiction needs to involve (rather than what it might involve).

My memorandum is now available on the Commission’s website here, and can also be found HERE.
