Carwyn Jones, First Minister
I am pleased to lay before the Assembly today, the third annual report on the Welsh Government’s implementation of Law Commission proposals.
Under Section 3C of the Law Commissions Act 1965, as inserted by Section 25 of the Wales Act 2014, the Welsh Ministers are required to report annually on the extent to which Law Commission proposals relating to Welsh devolved matters have been implemented.
This report covers the period from 17 February 2017 to 16 February 2018, and provides an update on the work of the Welsh Government in relation to Law Commission proposals. These including those contained in the report on the Form and Accessibility of the Law Applicable in Wales.
I also look forward to the outcome of other Law Commission reviews that relate to Welsh devolved matters, including the project relating to planning law in Wales.
The Welsh Government regards the proposals of the Law Commission with great importance, which is demonstrated by the progress set out in the report.
