Schedule 7 to the Government of Wales Act 2006 sets out the subjects which would be devolved to the National Assembly for Wales in the event of an affirmative vote in the referendum on 3 March and the Assembly voting to commence the powers in Part 4 of the Act. Parliament is currently responsible for legislating on those subjects which have not been devolved to the Assembly in Acts of Parliament or through Legislative Competence Orders (LCOs).
