In the third Assembly an Order could be proposed by the Welsh Assembly Government, an Assembly committee, or an Assembly Member. The Assembly procedures relevant to proposed Orders are set out in Standing Order 22
In the Assembly, proposed Orders were considered under a two-stage process:
Once approved by the Assembly, the Order was sent to the Secretary of State to be laid before both Houses of the UK Parliament and, if approved, made by Her Majesty in Council.
