Legislative Consent: Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) Bill

This is a matter where the consent of the National Assembly for Wales is sought by the UK Government to legislate on an issue which could normally fall within the competence of the Assembly.


The Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) Bill was introduced in the House of Commons on 11 June 2019.


The Bill seeks to ensure that non-domestic rates bills more accurately reflect the current rental value of properties by bringing forward the next revaluation exercise to 1 April 2021.


The Welsh Government laid a Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) on the Bill before the National Assembly on 19 June 2019 (PDF, 76KB).


The Non-Domestic Rating (Lists) Bill failed to complete its passage through UK Parliament before the prorogue of Parliament on 9 September 2019. This means the Bill will make no further progress and the LCM is no longer required.
