The future of devolution in Wales
The Silk Commission was established by the UK Government in October 2011 to review the financial and constitutional arrangements in Wales. Its 1st report (November 2012) deals with the Assembly’s financial powers. The 2nd report (March 2014), addresses the Assembly’s non-financial powers and has 61 recommendations.
The recommendations include:
- a new Government of Wales Act with the introduction of a reserved powers model of devolution by 2021
- enhanced powers in areas such as water, transport, energy and elections
- new powers over policing and youth justice
- improved inter-governmental relations.
The Welsh Government supports the direction of the Report which provides a sound basis for the evolutionary reform of the devolution settlement.
The Welsh Government’s response to the Silk Commission’s 2nd report was published on 1st July 2014.
