The Welsh Government has been in discussion with the Wales Office in recent months in connection with the Secretary of State’s draft Wales Bill. He is now proposing to modify his Bill and introduce it into Parliament later this year.

Today I am placing before the Assembly a draft Government and Laws in Wales Bill, together with an Explanatory Summary, prepared by the Welsh Government and illustrating the sort of approach which we believe would provide Wales with the devolution settlement we need for the longer term. I will be making an Oral Statement about the Bill tomorrow afternoon.
