The Order extends the legislative competence of the National Assembly for Wales to make laws known as Measures of the National Assembly for Wales (referred to in the 2006 Act as “Assembly Measures”). The legislative competence conferred by this Order is subject to general limitations on the exercise of that legislative competence, which apply by virtue of section 94 of, and Schedule 5 to, the 2006 Act.
Article 2 inserts matter 10.2 into field 10 (highways and transport) of Part 1 of Schedule 5 to the 2006 Act. Matter 10.2 is about concessionary fares.
