Legislative Consent: United Kingdom Internal Market Bill

The United Kingdom Internal Market Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 9 September 2020. The Bill's introduction followed a UK Government White Paper, which was considered by the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee and the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee.

 

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 25 September 2020.

 

The Business Committee referred the LCM to the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee, and Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee, with a reporting deadline of Thursday 26 November 2020 (Revised on 17 November 2020).
