​Legislative Consent Motions

When the UK Parliament wishes to legislate on a subject matter which has already been devolved to the Senedd, convention requires it to receive the consent of the Senedd before it may pass the legislation in question. Such consent is given by the Senedd through Legislative Consent Motions (LCMs).

Standing Order 29 sets out guidelines on how the Senedd deals with LCMs

Legislative Consent Motions for the UK Bills outlined below have been considered by the Senedd. The motions are listed by year. Please click on the links for further details.

The consent of the Senedd is also sought in certain instances where UK Government Ministers exercise order-making powers in devolved areas which are provided for by existing primary legislation. Such consent is given by the Senedd through Consent Motions. They are different to 'Legislative' Consent Motions in that they relate to orders emanating from UK Acts already in force rather than provisions included in Bills which are yet to receive approval from the UK Parliament.

The tables below include a list of all Legislative Consent Motions which relate to UK Parliamentary Bills laid before the Senedd.
