Purpose of the consultation
Purpose of the consultation
The Health, Social Care and Sport Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the general principles of the Autism (Wales) Bill. Further details about the Bill and the accompanying Explanatory Memorandum can be found on the Bill page.
Terms of reference
- the general principles of the Autism (Wales) Bill and the extent to which it will make provision for meeting the needs of children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Wales and achieve the aim of protecting and promoting their rights;
- any potential barriers to the implementation of the provisions and whether the Bill takes account of them;
- whether there are any unintended consequences arising from the Bill;
- the financial implications of the Bill (as set out in Part 2 of the Explanatory Memorandum);
- the appropriateness of the powers in the Bill for Welsh Ministers to make subordinate legislation (as set out in Chapter 6 of Part 1 of the Explanatory Memorandum).
Invitation to contribute to the inquiry
The Committee welcomes evidence on the terms of reference and the extent to which the Bill will achieve the aim of protecting and promoting the rights of children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Wales.
Submissions should arrive by 14 September 2018.
If you wish to submit evidence, please send an electronic copy of your submission to: email@example.com.
We will also be holding focus groups over the summer for people with ASD and their families to let us have their views on the Bill. If you would like to take part in a focus group, please contact Sally.Jones11@Assembly.Wales for more information.
