Consultation on separate legal jurisdiction for Wales


The Welsh government is asking whether cases which relate to laws passed in Wales should only be heard in Welsh courts.

Ministers have launched a 12-week public consultation into whether Wales should have a separate legal jurisdiction.

Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan has poured scorn on the idea, saying the current system has served Wales well for centuries.

Aled ap Dafydd reports.
