Wales to consider split-off to become separate legal jurisdiction
Wales is set to consider operating as a separate legal jurisdiction with the launch of a 12-week consultation next week (27 March). The Welsh Government has set up a committee to examine the impact of splitting from England to allow it to pass laws applicable only within Wales' borders. The review comes after a referendum last year saw Wales vote in favour of its assembly having full law-making powers on devolved issues, without requiring Westminster's consent.
