The Legal Future of Wales

Listen in pop-out player

Joining us this week is Theo Huckle QC, the chief legal officer of Wales who - controversially - says it's "inevitable" that Wales will become a separate legal jurisdiction. Are centuries of legal union with England really coming to an end?

Also in this week's programme: as President Obama raises the problem of the millions of children in the US who have no legal status because they were born to illegal immigrants, we find out what's going on in Britain.

And, amid the national debate about so-called 'gagging clauses', we explain the extent of the existing legal protection for whistleblowers. The law as it stands is, it seems, rather more powerful than many think.

Producer: Mukul Devichand.
