The Proposed Legislative Competence Order relating to School Governance - Welsh Affairs Committee Contents

Annex B

Our inquiry

We announced our inquiry and issued a call for evidence on 28 October 2009. On 14 January 2010 we took oral evidence from the Welsh Assembly Government Minister for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills, Leighton Andrews, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Wales Office, Mr Wayne David MP, and officials. We also benefited from an informal meeting with the Mike German AM, the Chair of National Assembly for Wales Legislation Committee No. 4 to discuss the issues raised by our respective inquiries, which was highly productive. We received written evidence directly from Undeb Cenedlaethol Athrawon Cymru (UCAC, the National Union of Teachers for Wales), and we also considered the evidence submitted to the Assembly Committee. We are grateful for the assistance of our specialist advisers, Professor Catherine Farrell, Department of Social Sciences, University of Glamorgan,[30] and Professor Keith Patchett, Emeritus Professor of Law, University of Wales.[31]
