Legislative Consent: Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill

Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 8 June 2021.


The long title to the Bill notes that it is a Bill “to make provision for and in connection with the establishment of the Advanced Research and Invention Agency.”


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 falls  within the competence of the Senedd.


The Welsh Government laid a Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) (PDF 146KB) on the Bill before the Senedd on 9 July 2021.


The Business Committee referred the LCM to the Economy, Trade and Rural Affairs Committee, the Children, Young People and Education Committee, and the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee, with a reporting deadline of 21 October 2021. (PDF 42.1KB)


Further information on the Senedd’s consideration of the LCM, including relevant correspondence, can be found under ‘Related Meetings’.
