Consultation on the implications for Wales of Britain exiting the European Union

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee is seeking the views of stakeholders on the implications for Wales of Britain exiting the European Union.


In particular, the Committee would welcome views on the following questions:

  • What should be the top priority for Wales in advance of the UK Government triggering of Article 50 (which starts the formal process of exiting the EU)?
  • Can you provide examples of where the UK’s proposed approach to transferring the acquis communautaire (the body of European law), through the proposed Great Repeal Bill, into domestic law might have particular implications for Wales?


Submissions should focus on answering these questions.


The Committee welcomes responses in Welsh or English from individuals and organisations. We ask that organisations with their own language policies provide bilingual responses in line with those policies.


Submissions should be no longer than 2,000 words, contain numbered paragraphs, and sources of evidence should be referenced and hyperlinked where possible.


Closing date: 28 November 2016
