HOW A BILL BECOMES A LAW

Once the Welsh Assembly (their seal is the flower top left) have passed a bill, it must be sent to Westminster For approval and be signed by the queen. As you can see she has signed it Elizabeth R (R is the Latin for Regina). Then it comes back to Wales and is now LAW.

This is a very important law, signed by the queen herself.

As you can see from this breakdown of party seats, Labour is the biggest party in the assembly, therefore its members have taken all the ministerial positions. However if all the other parties join together they can defeat a Labour bill.
