The UK Government has strengthened and enhanced devolution in Wales. We are fully committed to abiding by the Sewel Convention and associated practices. We have sought legislative consent from the National Assembly for Wales for certain provisions of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill in line with this. We will continue to discuss with the Welsh Government the clauses for which Assembly consent is sought.
