Scope of the inquiry

The terms of reference of the inquiry seek to address the following points:

  • The implications for the Welsh devolution settlement of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill as drafted.
  • UK-wide policy making: which EU competencies should be transferred to the National Assembly for Wales after Brexit? How should UK-wide common policy frameworks be structured, and what inter-parliamentary mechanisms would be needed to scrutinise such frameworks?
  • How should agricultural funding be allocated in Wales post-Brexit? Should Wales develop its own policy or be part of a wider UK policy?
  • What are the current mechanisms for engagement between the devolved administrations and the UK Government on trading matters?
  • What are the challenges facing agricultural trade in Wales when the UK leaves the EU? How should the level of trade and export of Welsh food and drink be protected and maintained?
