Consultation seeks public support in drafting “game changing” autism legislation

L-R: Isobel Sutcliffe, Assembly Member Paul Davies and Helen Brandrick.Welsh Conservative AM, Paul Davies, has today launched a public consultation to help shape proposals for an Autism Act.

Mr Davies’ proposals were supported by two-thirds of Assembly members, after he was successfully drawn out of a ballot for back-bench legislation.

The Autism Bill’s aim is to improve service provision for children and adults with autism spectrum conditions in Wales, and to give the condition its own statutory identity.

Similar legislation exists in the rest of the UK, and critics have long called for people with Autism in Wales to be given the same statutory support.
