The Powers in the EU (Withdrawal) Bill to make subordinate legislation

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee has decided to undertake a short inquiry to examine the powers delegated to UK and Welsh Ministers in the UK Government’s EU (Withdrawal) Bill in order to make subordinate legislation. The terms of reference for our inquiry are:


(i)           to consider the appropriateness of:  

-        the scope and nature of delegated powers provided in the Bill to UK and Welsh Ministers, including the use of Henry VIII powers;

-        ­the procedures to be used to scrutinise delegated legislation under the Bill.


(ii)          to consider the reports of other parliamentary committees across the UK on the delegated powers within the Bill;


(iii)        to consider any other relevant matter relating to the making of subordinate legislation as a consequence of the Bill.


We will use the responses to our joint consultation exercise with the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee on the Bill, and the positions we have already taken, to inform our work.
