On 1 April 2018 devolution in Wales will enter a new phase, as many of the provisions of the Wales Act 2017 will come into force. A key part of the Wales Act 2017 is that it gives the Assembly powers to amend parts of the Government of Wales Act 2006 which set out the Assembly’s electoral, organisational and internal arrangements. Previously, these powers rested with the UK Parliament. A public consultation on the scope of the potential electoral, organisational and internal reforms to the Wales Act 2017 is currently being run by the Welsh Government. The documentation can be viewed at www.assembly.wales/futuresenedd. It closes on Friday 6 April 2018.
