Clause 103 — Proposal for referendum by Assembly
Government of Wales Bill (Programme) (No. 3)
Don Touhig (Islwyn, Labour)
I am following my right hon. Friend's argument. Will he confirm that, under our constitutional arrangements, the Assembly cannot require this House to pass legislation? The Assembly may request that, but, at the end of the day, this Parliament of the United Kingdom holds the ultimate responsibility for law making in this land and only this Parliament can grant full powers to the Assembly.
