Government in Wales

Since devolution, some policies and services are different in Wales. The National Assembly for Wales and the Welsh Assembly Government are responsible for most of the issues of day-to-day concern to the people of Wales.

National Assembly for Wales

The National Assembly for Wales is the representative body, with law-making powers on devolved matters. It debates and approves legislation.

The role of the Assembly is to scrutinise and monitor the Welsh Assembly Government. It has 60 elected members and meets in the Senedd.

Welsh Assembly Government

The Welsh Assembly Government is the devolved government for Wales. It develops and implements policy, and is answerable to the National Assembly.

Led by the First Minister, it is responsible for many issues, including health, education, economic development, culture, the environment and transport.
