The future of Welsh law

The Welsh Government has introduced its first-ever programme to improve the accessibility of Welsh law, as required by the Legislation (Wales) Act 2019. The programme commits the Government to bringing forward consolidation Bills and taking a number of other technical steps to make it easier for citizens to find and understand the law. Consolidation of several different existing Acts (or bringing them together) to create one well-drafted, bilingual Act is one of the most effective ways of improving the accessibility of Welsh law, and will lay the foundation for establishing Codes of Welsh law.

The programme is also available on GOV.WALES in HTML format.
