The function of Deputy Welsh Ministers is to assist the First Minister, Welsh Ministers or the Counsel General in the exercise of their functions. They may be removed from office by the First Minister, may resign at any time and must do so, with immediate effect, if the Assembly resolves that the Welsh Ministers no longer enjoy the confidence of the Assembly. A Deputy Welsh Minister also ceases to hold office on ceasing to be a member of the Assembly other than by reason of a dissolution.
