The responses to this consultation are currently being reviewed. Details of the outcome will be published here in due course.
The Interpretation Act 1978 sets out general rules about interpreting legislation applying in England and Wales. It is an Act of the UK Parliament and made in English only.
We are consulting on whether the Welsh Government should develop a modern and bilingual interpretation act for Wales, which would set out general rules and definitions that would apply to Acts of the National Assembly and legislation made under those acts.
