Legislative Competence Orders

Today I received a special piece of Welsh history. While visiting Westminster I got a copy of the Welsh Affairs Committee's report Proposed National Assembly for Wales (Legislative Competence) (Welsh Language) Order 2009. The report was published today.

There is some work still to do, but this document, agreed unanimously by the Welsh Affairs Committee will pave the way for the National Assembly, for the first time ever, to promulgate primary legislation in the context of the Welsh Language.

I will guard my copy well and thank those who signed it for me. It's greatly appreciated.
