Autism Bill drawn in Member Bill Ballot, 29/03/17 [W]

A proposed Autism Bill has been drawn in the latest Member Bill Ballot of the National Assembly for Wales.

The Bill makes provision to better meet the needs of children and adults with autism spectrum conditions in Wales. The Bill aims to better protect and promote the rights of people with autism and would give the condition its own statutory identity, making autism recognisable in its own right.

Paul Davies, who proposed the Bill, will now have until 5 May to table a motion seeking the Assembly’s agreement that it can be introduced as a Member Bill. If agreed, the Bill will have to be developed and introduced in 13 months’ time.
