Wales Bill — Clause 1 — Separation of the Legal Jurisdictions for England and Wales — 12 Sep 2016 at 19:30
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted against the separation of the legal systems of England and Wales.
The majority of MPs voted against the separation of the legal systems of England and Wales.
MPs were considering the Wales Bill.
The amendment rejected in this vote began:
- Amendment 60, page 2 leave out lines 4 to 9 and insert—
- Part 2B
- Establishment of Two Distinct Jurisdictions
- 92B Legal jurisdictions of Wales and of England
- The legal jurisdiction of England and Wales becomes two legal jurisdictions, that of Wales and that of England.
- 92C The law of Wales and the law of England
- (1) The law of England and Wales is divided into the law of Wales and the law of England.
Had it not been rejected this amendment would have impacted Clause 1 of the Bill which provided for recognition of the ability of the Assembly and the Welsh Ministers to make law forming part of the law of England and Wales, but not for the separation of the jurisdictions.
