Government of Wales Act 2006

Paragraphs 36 and 37: Transfers of Assembly functions: laying of reports and statements

841.Paragraphs 36 and 37 apply in relation to former Assembly functions of making or receiving reports or statements which are now exercisable by the Welsh Ministers, the First Minister, the Counsel General or the Assembly Commission, because those functions have been transferred to one of the latter group by paragraph 30 of this Schedule, or by an Order in Council under paragraph 31. Where such functions are ones which were made exercisable by the old Assembly by an Order in Council under section 22 of GoWA and, prior to that, were subject to a statutory requirement to lay the report or statement before Parliament, then that requirement applies to the Welsh Ministers etc as if the reference to Parliament was a reference to the Assembly constituted under this Act.

842.Where such functions are ones which were conferred or imposed on the old Assembly by legislation which was passed or made prior to the first appointment of a First Minister under this Act , and that legislation required the old Assembly to publish the report or statement, then a copy of the report or statement must be laid before the Assembly.
