Legislative Consent: Finance Bill 2020

The Finance Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 17 March 2020.

The Bill is subject to the legislative consent process under
Standing Order 29. This is when the consent of the Welsh Parliament 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) on the Bill before the Senedd on 13 May 2020.


The Business Committee referred the LCM to the Finance Committee, and Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee, with a reporting deadline of Thursday 18 June 2020 (Revised on 8 June).
