Legislative Consent: Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill

The Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (the Bill) was introduced in the House of Commons  on 22 September 2022.

The long title to the Bill notes that it is a Bill “revoke certain retained EU law; to make provision relating to the interpretation of retained EU law and to its relationship with other law; to make provision relating to powers to modify retained EU law; to enable the restatement, replacement or updating of certain retained EU law; to enable the updating of restatements and replacement provision; to abolish the business impact target; and for connected purposes.”

The Bill is subject to the legislative consent process under Standing Order 29 (PDF 599KB). 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.
