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.
