Inter-Institutional Relations Agreement - Fifth Senedd

In February 2018 the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee* (the Committee) published its report UK governance post-Brexit. Recommendation 9 of that report stated:

“We recommend that the Welsh Government enters into an intergovernmental relations agreement with this Committee to support the scrutiny of Welsh Government activity in this area.”

Following negotiations with the Welsh Government, the Committee formally agreed the final version of the Inter-Institutional Relations Agreement (the Agreement) on 7 January 2019. The Agreement was laid (PDF 239KB) before the Senedd on 31 January 2019 and debated in Plenary on 6 March 2019.

This Agreement (PDF 239KB) represents the agreed position of the Senedd and the Welsh Government on the information that the Welsh Government will, where appropriate (see paragraph 7 of the Agreement), provide to the Senedd with regard to its own participation in formal, ministerial level inter-governmental meetings, concordats, agreements and memorandums of understanding.

On October 27 2020 the Welsh Government laid its first Annual Report (PDF 127KB).

Correspondence and documents that can be found on this page have been shared with the Senedd in accordance with the Agreement.

* Following a resolution in Plenary on 29 January 2020, the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee became the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee.
