Abstract

Howell explores the impacts of devolved politics on the heritage and museums sector in Wales. His work focuses on efforts by the Welsh Government to create a ‘Heritage Bill’ specific to the needs of the Welsh cultural sector. This chapter looks at the impacts and priorities of government in Wales regarding heritage resources and heritage providers. Howell questions the motivations of the Welsh Government in its failed attempt to bring bodies such as the Royal Commission ‘in house’. He concludes with a consideration of the demands placed on the National Museum in Wales by government, as the heritage sector is increasingly called upon to achieve the wider goals of government policy.
