Cardiff Harbour Authority (09.05.02)

First Minister 19.4.02

Alison Halford:

Does the First Minister have any role or responsibilities in relation to the Welsh Assembly Government?s dealings with the Cardiff Harbour Authority? (WAQ17678)


The First Minister:

As First Minister I have overall responsibility for the exercise of functions by the Assembly Government. The Assembly Government?s role in relation to Cardiff Harbour Authority stems from the agreement made pursuant to section 165 of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 between the former Cardiff Bay Development Corporation and the County Council of the City and County of Cardiff on 27 March 2000. The former CBDC?s rights and liabilities under that agreement were transferred to the Assembly by the Cardiff Bay Development Corporation (Transfer of Property, Rights and Liabilities) (National Assembly for Wales) Order 2000 SI996 (W53). Those responsibilities fall within the portfolio of the Minister for Economic Development, but other Ministers have an interest too.
