Government of Wales Act 2006


Section 106: Effect on Measures of commencement of Assembly Act provisions

389.This section provides that, as soon as the Assembly Act provisions have come into force (i.e. under an order made by the Welsh Ministers under section 105), Part 3 of the Act ceases to have effect.

390.This means that the Assembly will no longer have the power to pass Assembly Measures. The vehicle for laws that might formerly have been made by Assembly Measure will, from then on, be Acts of the Assembly.

391.However, Assembly Measures which have already been enacted (i.e. passed or approved by the Assembly, and approved by Her Majesty in Council) will continue to be law.
