Inquiry into the Great Repeal Bill and its implications for Wales



In the context of the UK Government’s White Paper, the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee will assess whether:

  • the Assembly’s role in the Brexit legislative process and in scrutinising executive functions in areas of devolved competence is protected;
  • principles of effective law making are being observed;
  • the Welsh people, stakeholders and organisations have sufficient opportunity to contribute to the legislative processes established by the Bill;
  • the Bill enables the Assembly to exercise appropriate control over delegated powers provided by the Bill; and
  • the Welsh Government’s response is sufficient.
