Example text

In Scotland it developed over a longer time span than in Wales, since the devolution scheme started to be constructed by the Constitutional Convention. Devolution has been defined as an ‘asymmetrical constitutional architecture’ (O’Neill, 2000: 78), in which Scotland and Northern Ireland benefit from wider legislative powers than does Wales. In Wales, the limited legislative competencies are a direct consequence of these asymmetrical arrangements, and make the Welsh arrangements the most fragile of the three devolved polities.

Indeed, unlike The process of devolution in the UK 29 Scotland, which had its own institutions in which the Scottish identity was formally recognised by the establishment of the Scottish Office, in Wales there were not specific political institutions. In the 1900s there had been a series of reforms, which aimed to decentralise administration. This process slowly created a Welsh distinctiveness, which therefore was not the result of strong nationalistic pressures, but it was a political decision taken at central level (in Whitehall and Westminster).

Within the Assembly, ‘Statutory Committees’ are created in order to provide a stronger and more focused power to the Assembly members in exercising the policy advice roles and their scrutiny powers over the work of the executive. These committees have the primary function of advising and assisting in the policy formulation of each of the departments with which they are associated. They also have the power to initiate primary legislation, thus sharing this power with the Executive Committee. Each of these Statutory Committees has eleven members.
