Legislative Consent: Armed Forces Bill

The Armed Forces Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 26 January 2021.


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 18 February 2021.


The Business Committee referred the LCM to the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee, with a reporting deadline of Thursday 25 March 2021.


The Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee laid its report on the Legislative Consent Memoranda on 24 March 2021.
