Senedd and Elections (Wales) Act 2020

Section 2 – National Assembly for Wales renamed Senedd Cymru or Welsh Parliament

5.Section 2 replaces the reference in section 1 of the 2006 Act to “National Assembly for Wales” with “Senedd Cymru or the Welsh Parliament” (to be referred to in the remainder of the 2006 Act as “the Senedd”). Paragraph 2 (3)(a) of Schedule 1 to the Act makes a further amendment to section 1 of the 2006 Act in consequence of this to make it clear that there is to be a parliament (rather than an Assembly) for Wales. As noted, the 2006 Act will refer to the parliament as “the Senedd”.
