Government of Wales Act 2006

Remuneration, oaths etc.

Section 21: Limit on salaries of members

102.This section requires the Assembly to reduce the salary of any Assembly member who also receives a salary as a Member of Parliament or a Member of the European Parliament. The amount by which the salary is reduced is a matter for the Assembly. Expenses paid to Members of the House of Lords do not give rise to a reduction since they are not a salary. The reduction must be either of a particular proportion of the Assembly member’s salary, or the whole, or a proportion of the other salary or some other amount.

103.Provision for the reduction may be made either by the Assembly’s standing orders or by Assembly resolution and may also be the subject of an Assembly Measure under Part 3 of the Act. Functions may be conferred on the Assembly Commission.
