Committee on Better Governance for Wales White Paper
The White Paper on the future of the National Assembly for Wales (Better Governance for Wales) was published on 15 June 2005. It contained proposals for changes in the Assembly’s structure, legislative powers and electoral arrangements.
The consultation period on the White Paper runs until 16 September 2005. As part of its response to the consultation, The National Assembly for Wales has established a special Committee to take evidence from leading figures on the Welsh political and constitutional stages. The Committee will report back to The Assembly before submitting its report to the UK government.
The Committee’s terms of reference are:
- Consider the proposals set out in the White Paper so far as they relate to the proposed new structure and its proposed legislative powers;
- Take evidence from organisations and individuals with a direct interest in the proposed new structure of the Assembly and its proposed legislative powers.
