802. The Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers.

Although administrative responsibility for the matters within the scope of this title1 has over the years rested with a number of different ministers it is now almost entirely vested in the Secretary of State2.

Under the arrangements originally made3 for devolved government in Wales4, a number of ministerial functions relating to the matters covered by this title were transferred, subject to prescribed exceptions and qualifications, to the National Assembly for Wales5. Following the re-organisation of devolved government in Wales under the Government of Wales Act 2006, the functions transferred to the Assembly are now exercisable by the Welsh Ministers6.
