1999 to 2007 (Executive Body of the National Assembly)

(Prior to enactment of the Government of Wales Act 2006)


The Welsh Assembly Government has no independent executive powers in law (unlike, for instance, the Scottish Ministers and Ministers in the UK government). The Assembly was established as a body corporate by the Government of Wales Act 1998 and the executive, as a committee of the Assembly, only has those powers that the Assembly as a whole votes to vest in ministers. The Government of Wales Act 2006 will formally separate the Assembly and the Welsh Assembly Government giving Welsh Ministers independent executive authority. This will be enacted post National Assembly for Wales Election in May 2007. The Government of Wales Act, 1998 (1998 c. ... A committee is a (relatively) small group that can serve one of several functions: Governance: in organizations too large for all the members to participate in decisions affecting the organization as a whole, a committee (such as a Board of Directors) is given the power to make decisions. ... The Government of Wales Act 2006 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. ... May 2007 is the fifth month of that year. ...


Under the current arrangements in the 1998 Act, executive functions are conferred on the National Assembly for Wales and then separately delegated to the First Minister and to other Cabinet Ministers and staff as appropriate. Following separation, the Welsh Ministers will exercise functions in their own right and further transfers of executive functions from the UK Government will be made directly to the Welsh Ministers (with their consent) by an Order in Council approved by Parliament.


Post-2007 National Assembly for Wales Elections

Legal Separation


The new arrangements provided for in the Government of Wales Act 2006 create a formal legal separation between the National Assembly for Wales, which will be the legislature comprising the 60 Assembly members, and the Welsh Assembly Government, the executive, which will comprise the First Minister, Welsh Ministers, Deputy Welsh Ministers and the Counsel General. This separation between legislature and executive will take effect once the First Minister has been appointed by Her Majesty the Queen following the Assembly election on 3 May 2007. The Government of Wales Act 2006 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. ... May 3 is the 123rd day of the year in the Gregorian calendar (124th in leap years). ... 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era. ...


Separation should help to clarify the respective roles of the legislature and the executive. The role of the executive will be to make decisions; develop and implement policy; exercise executive functions and make statutory instruments. The 60 Assembly members in the National Assembly will scrutinise the Assembly Government’s decisions and policies; hold Ministers to account; approve budgets for the Welsh Assembly Government’s programmes; and have the power to enact Assembly Measures on certain matters. Assembly Measures can go further than the subordinate legislation which the Assembly currently has the power to make.


Transfer of Functions


The Assembly’s current functions, including those of making subordinate legislation, will, in the main, transfer to the Welsh Ministers upon separation. The result will mirror much more closely the relationship between the UK Government and Westminster and that between the Scottish Executive and the Scottish Parliament.


A third body will also be established under the 2006 Act from May 2007, which will be called the National Assembly for Wales Commission. It will be responsible for employing the staff supporting the new National Assembly for Wales and for holding property, entering into contracts and providing support services on its behalf. May 2007 is the fifth month of that year. ...


Welsh Ministers


The 2006 Act makes new provision for the appointment of Welsh Ministers. The First Minister will be nominated by the Assembly and then appointed by Her Majesty the Queen. The First Minister will subsequently appoint the Welsh Ministers and the Deputy Welsh Ministers, with the approval of Her Majesty. The Act creates a new post of Counsel General for Wales, who will be the principal source of legal advice to the Welsh Assembly Government. The Counsel General will be appointed by the Queen, on the nomination of the First Minister, whose recommendation will need to be agreed by the National Assembly. The Counsel General may be, but does not have to be, an Assembly Member. The Act permits a maximum of 12 Welsh Ministers, which includes Deputy Welsh Ministers, but excludes the First Minister and the Counsel General. Accordingly, the maximum size of the Welsh Assembly Government is 14. The term First Minister refers to the leader of a cabinet United Kingdom In the United Kingdom, the term First Minister was once used interchangeably with Prime Minister, as in Winston Churchills famous line: I did not become Her Majestys First Minister so that I might oversee the...
