Dear Mick

Invitation to give evidence – 20 June 2022

You will recall that we had a very informative discussion last September which provided an early opportunity to hear from you on matters within your portfolio and to help set the scene as my Committee began its work in this Sixth Senedd.

As the first full year of the Sixth Senedd draws to an end we would like to invite you to attend our meeting on 20 June, from 1.00 – 2.30 pm, so that we may discuss key developments and issues within your area of responsibility since we last met. This meeting will take place on the Senedd estate, room location to be confirmed.

I would be grateful if you could confirm, at your earliest convenience, whether you will be able to attend. This session will help inform an annual report, which we intend to lay before the Senedd early in the summer recess.

In addition you will know that, this week in the UK Parliament, the UK Government’s legislative programme for the forthcoming session was announced in the Queen’s Speech. Following on from your letter to us of 1 March 2022, we would be grateful if you would provide your initial assessment of the Bills included within the announcement which you consider will require legislative consent memoranda to be laid before the Senedd. Furthermore, it would be helpful if, as part of that assessment, you could confirm which Bills the Welsh Government is seeking, or may seek, provision for Wales in devolved areas. We would welcome receipt of this information by 25 May so that it may be used to inform our work planning.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

Huw Irranca-Davies
Chair
