How are laws made for Wales?

At the All Wales Convention Executive Committee meeting on 5 November 2008, the First Welsh Legislative Counsel, Professor Thomas Watkin (First Welsh legislative Counsel) gave a presentation on how legislation is currently made for Wales, and the options set out in the Government of Wales Act 2006 for giving law-making powers to the Assembly.

This was followed by a panel discussion, where he was joined by Hugh Rawlings, Welsh Assembly Government Director of Constitutional Affairs, Equality and Communications, and Jeff Godfrey, Welsh Assembly Government Director of Legal Services Department.
