Legislative Consent: Building Safety Bill

The Building Safety Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons on 5 July 2021.

 

The long title to the Bill notes that it is a Bill “to make provision about the safety of people in or about buildings and the standard of buildings, to amend the Architects Act 1997, and to amend provision about complaints made to a housing ombudsman.”

 

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.
