Government & Devolution

Wales’s devolution settlement and governance is ‘complex’ and a ‘messy compromise’, the result of two referendums and three Acts of Parliament in just 17 years.


Why it matters

Uncertainty about the Welsh Government’s powers, their interplay with UK functions in Wales and an unfair funding settlement mean that Wales’s governance is not always easily understood by the public and can be hard for reformers to navigate and change.

We are developing proposals to develop new ideas about Wales’s governance.

What we are doing

Our key current project is:

Tax for Good

The Wales Act 2014 gives the National Assembly for Wales one of its potentially most important powers to date – the ability to introduce new, devolved taxes.

This project , funded by the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, will develop proposals for new taxes which could change the behaviour of businesses, organisations and individuals, and help to create a fairer, more prosperous and sustainable Wales.

To contribute your ideas, thoughts or comments please email [email protected] putting DEVOLVED TAX in the subject line.
