​​Senedd Acts

The following Acts of Senedd Cymru have received Royal Assent during the Fifth Senedd (from May 2016)

Once a Bill has been considered and passed by the Senedd and given Royal Assent by the Monarch, it becomes an 'Act of Senedd Cymru'. The Senedd is able to pass Acts on any matters that are not reserved to the UK Parliament by the Government of Wales Act 2006 (as amended by the Wales Act 2017).

More detailed information about Bills and Acts of Senedd Cymru, and about the Senedd's legislative process, is available on the Legislation web pages.
