Written Statement - Publication of Wales Bill and Command Paper

Rt. Hon Carwyn Jones, First Minister of Wales

I wish to draw to the attention of Assembly Members the publication today of a Wales Bill, and an accompanying Command Paper, by the UK Government.

This is an important step towards securing new tax and borrowing powers for Wales.  I am pleased that the UK Government remains on course to deliver the financial powers by the end of this Parliament.

The Wales Bill is due to be published on Parliament's website:

The Command Paper is due to be published on the Wales Office's website:
