Legislative Consent: Subsidy Control Bill

The Subsidy Control Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 30 June 2021.


The long title to the Bill notes that it is a Bill “to make provision regulating the giving of subsidies out of public resources; and for connected purposes.”


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 112KB) on the Bill before the Senedd on 13 July 2021.


The Business Committee agreed (PDF 38.5KB), in accordance with Standing Order 29.4(i), to invite the Economy, Trade and Rural Affairs Committee and the Legislation, Justice and Constitution Committee to consider and report on the Legislative Consent Memorandum on the Subsidy Control Bill, to the Senedd, by 4 November 2021.



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