The Environment Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 30 January 2020.
The Bill is subject to the legislative consent process under Standing Order 29. This is when the consent of the Senedd is sought by the UK Government to legislate on an issue which could normally fall within the competence of the Senedd.
The Welsh Government laid a Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) (PDF 201KB) on the Bill before the Senedd on Wednesday 26 February 2020.
The Business Committee referred the LCM to the Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee, and Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee, with a reporting deadline of Friday 17 July 2020 (Revised on 29 June 2020).
