National Assembly for Wales and Welsh Government Successfully implement Propylon’s Legislative Workbench

Propylon recently completed a successful deployment of it’s Legislative Workbench (LWB) for both the National Assembly for Wales and Welsh Government. Propylon worked closely with the Legislation Office in the Assembly and the Office of the Welsh Legislative Counsel in the Welsh Government to customize the LWB for their needs. The Assembly and Government are now using the LWB with a range of customized templates and tool sets to draft and verify all dual language Bills in Wales.

The introduction of the Legislative Workbench will result in greater efficiencies in communication as Bills drafted by the Government will be seamlessly transferred from their systems to the Assembly systems. Through the use of the LWB the bills drafted will be of high quality, reducing the amount of proofing and re-keying that was required in the previous system.
