Leaving the European Union: monitoring negotiations between the UK and the EU

This page brings together areas of governmental scrutiny which help to inform various inquiries that Assembly committees, usually External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee, are undertaking.


During scrutiny sessions with both Welsh and UK government ministers, the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee will:


  • monitor the progress of the negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union in relation to the UK’s exit from the European Union from a Welsh perspective.
  • identify any areas that are of particular relevance to Wales or which could impact upon devolved areas of competence.


General scrutiny will focus on a wide range of areas that includes Brexit legislation, trade issues, intergovernmental relations and common frameworks.


Additionally, the Research Service of the National Assembly for Wales will also be publishing regular Brexit monitoring reports as the negotiation process unfolds over the coming months and years.


Each report provides a summary of the latest developments, including the latest documents and legislation published. It will also provide an analysis of the key issues of interest to the External Affairs Committee and a summary of the Welsh Government’s response to the latest developments.
