This Library Note aims to provide background reading for the debate to be held on 19 July on the progress being made by the Commission on Devolution in Wales chaired by Paul Silk. It sets out the Commission’s membership and terms of reference and describes its current work on part one of its remit, the possible devolution of fiscal powers to Wales. The Note then provides summaries of the key submissions it has received from the main political parties in Wales, from academics and from a selection of organisations. The Note concludes with other recent proposals that consider further devolution of fiscal powers to Wales.
