Wales Bill — Clause 44 — Power for UK Government to Intervene in Wales — 11 Jul 2016 at 20:45

The majority of MPs voted for the UK Government to retain powers to intervene if the actions of Welsh Assembly risk an adverse effect in a broad range of areas, in particular if they pose serious adverse impact on water and sewage issues in England.

MPs were considering the Wales Bill.[1]

The amendment rejected in this vote stated:

  • Amendment 81, page 34, leave out line 37 to line 5 on page 35 and insert—
  • “Omit sections 114 and 152 of the Government of Wales Act 2006.”

The amendment was accompanied by an explanatory note stating:

  • This amendment removes the power of the Secretary of State to veto any Welsh legislation or measures that might have a serious adverse impact on water supply or quality in England.

The question rejected in this vote was:

  • That the amendment be made.

The rejected amendment would have replaced the content Clause 44[2] of the Wales Bill which sought allow the UK Parliament to intervene in relation to Welsh Assembly Bills in the case of a risk of serious adverse impact on sewerage services or systems in England”.

The rejected amendment would have replaced this provision with the removal of sections 114 and 152 of the Government of Wales Act 2006. Section 114 provided for more general powers of intervention and Section 152 which permitted a UK Secretary of State to intervene in relation to impacts on Water in England.
