EU Select Committee
Oral evidence sessions announced.
The inquiry will consider the political and economic implications of Brexit for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and on the devolution settlement as a whole. It will consider the process by which responsibility for current EU competences that cover devolved matters will be transferred to the devolved institutions; the extent to which the devolved institutions have the capacity and resources to cope with these additional responsibilities; and what the repatriation of powers from the EU to the devolved institutions will mean for the balance of power between the UK Government and Parliament and the devolved bodies.
In addition, the Committee will assess how the UK Government should seek to reflect the interests of each of the devolved jurisdictions in the forthcoming negotiations, and whether existing mechanisms for intergovernmental and interparliamentary dialogue between Whitehall, Westminster and the devolved jurisdictions are sufficient to deal with the challenge of Brexit.
The Committee welcomes the views of stakeholders on the issues outlined below. Any submissions should be sent to the Committee, at [email protected], no later than 3 March 2017.
