New Website Shows how Welsh Laws Differ from Rest of UK


As the Welsh Government publishes its final scheduled Bill of this National Assembly term, a new website has been launched to help people better understand the way laws in Wales are starting to diverge from the rest of the UK.

The Cyfraith Cymru / Law Wales site has been spearheaded by the Welsh Counsel General, Theodore Huckle QC, working with legal publishers Westlaw UK, to raise awareness of the growing body of Welsh law being passed by the National Assembly for Wales and made by the Welsh Ministers.

The National Assembly can pass laws for Wales provided they relate to the 20 specified devolved areas of economic, social and cultural importance to citizens, including health, education, agriculture, transport, housing and the environment.
