Legislative Consent: Birmingham Commonwealth Games 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 Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill was introduced in the House of Lords on 5 June 2019.


The Bill seeks to address a small number of areas which require a legislative response in respect of the preparations for the Commonwealth Games, which are due to take place in Birmingham in 2022.


The Welsh Government laid a Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) on the Bill before the National Assembly on 19 June 2019 (PDF, 73KB).


The Bill failed to complete its passage through UK Parliament before Dissolution. This means the Bill will make no further progress.
