This article examines the impact of the Richard Commission in prompting change to the powers, structure and operation of the National Assembly for Wales. It uses new research to assess the extent to which new legislation (specifically the Government of Wales Act 2006) followed the Richard trajectory of greater autonomy. The Commission's recommendations were designed to establish a sustainable, longer-term settlement, which means that they offer a standard by which to measure recent incremental changes in Wales's evolving constitution and also by which to gauge the longer term future of devolution.
