BBC Democracy Day: A look at the National Assembly for Wales

Devolution has had a big effect on British politics in the past 20 years.

And moving more powers from Westminster to the nations and regions of Britain has been high on the political agenda since the Scottish Referendum in September.

Wales has had its own elected Assembly since 1999, and has had the power to make its own laws since 2006.

Nick Servini, BBC Wales Political Editor explains how the Assembly works.

Democracy Day takes place on Tuesday 20 January, across BBC radio, TV and online.

Go to the BBC News website's Democracy Day page, for analysis, backgrounders and explainers on the debate.
