Subordinate legislation subject to the affirmative procedure

The role of the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee is to consider and report on subordinate legislation laid before the National Assembly.


Some subordinate legislation made by the Welsh Ministers is subject to the affirmative procedure. This procedure provides that the Welsh Ministers cannot exercise their power to make subordinate legislation unless the Assembly has passed a resolution approving a draft of the subordinate legislation. The subordinate legislation is therefore laid before the Assembly in draft form, and cannot have effect unless the draft is approved by the Assembly. This procedure is often reserved for more significant subordinate legislation.
