So far as relating to Wales (which, by virtue of the definition in section 158(1) of the Government of Wales Act 2006, includes the sea adjacent to Wales out as far as the seaward boundary of the territorial sea), the functions in question are already functions of the Welsh Ministers, either having been conferred or imposed directly on them, or having been transferred to them from the National Assembly for Wales by paragraph 30 of Schedule 11 to the Government of Wales Act 2006. The functions so transferred from the National Assembly for Wales were transferred to it from Ministers of the Crown by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672), in the case of the functions mentioned in sub-paragraphs (a) to (f), and by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 2000 (S.I. 2000/253) in the case of the functions mentioned in paragraph (g).
